La Vie Seeks 
School Spirit 
In New Cheers 

Students May Match Wits 
To Give L. V. More Pep 

Calling for new cheers! The LA 
yiE COLLEGIENNE, at the suggest- 
ion and with the cooperation of the 
cheer leaders, is conducting a contest 
to secure the best, novel, and spirited 
cheers which can be obtained from the 
Lebanon Valley rooters. Those secured 
through this contest will be used at 
the basketball games for the first 

Particulars of this project are as 
follows: Any man or woman student 
may submit as many cheers as he or 
she wishes ; they may be placed in the 
LA VIE box in the library, or handed 
to either Frank Shenk, Jane Ehrhart, 
or Martha Davies; the deadline for 
submitting them will be noon of Tues- 
day, February 4, 1941. 

Winners of the contest will be an- 
nounced in the LA VIE of February 
6. The cheers placing first and second 
as well as eight receiving honorable 
mention will be printed at this time. 
At the game with Bucknell, in Leba- 
non, on February twelfth, the cheer 
leaders will lead these cheers for the 
first time. 

LA VIE feels that the student body 
has long felt the necessity of new 
zest and life in its supply of cheers 
for the old ones have been so repeat- 
ed and overused that the cheerers 
seem in the same lethargy of senility. 
The response of the students in this 
contest will show whether the cheers 
°r the cheerers are responsible for 
*e lack of display of school spirit. 
H the Lebanon Valley students feel 
* is beneath them to indulge in any 
display of spirit we remind them of 
deafening responses heard in 
broadcasts of Pennsylvania's, Cor- 
el's, or Notre Dame's football games 
as t fall. With the discovery of new 
* e »s at this time it is hoped that 
,he conclusion of this 1941 basketball

German Club 
Will Present 


"Jan und Geyse 

Characters Cast For Play 

March 14 has been set tentatively 
as the date for the presentation of 
the one-act German play, Teich's Jan 
und Geyse, by the Deutscher Verein. 
The cast of characters includes Paul 
Stouffer, as the tailor, Donald Bart- 
ley, as Jan, Dorothea Krall, the house- 
keeper, Marlin Espenshade, the wid- 
ower, and Ruth Heminway, Geyse. 
Miss Lietzau, assisted by Robert 
Spohn, is directing the production. 

The action takes place in the shop 
of an old tailor who loves clocks. In- 
trigues between the tailor, his appren- 
tice, Jan, his middle aged housekeep- 
er, and a wealthy bachelor, his young 
housekeeepr, Geyse, make an amusing, 
fast moving story which is written 
in simple enough German for even 
beginners in the language to under- 

Following the play there will be a 
program of dancing to waltz music, 
German singing and sketches. 

Committees have been appointed as 
follows: program, Lucile Esbenshade, 
Martha Davies; finance and tickets, 
Phoebe Geyer, Marion Kreider; pub- 
licity, Ruth Graybill; stage, Donald 
Bartley, Robert Mays, Earl Reber, 
Robert Mandle; dance, Hans Uberse- 
der; makeup, Floda Trout. 

LV.C Students 

Go French 

Dick Seiverling 


Neither rain, snow, or the "busy- 
ness" which usually accompanies the 
period over Christmas vacations, 
could hold back some of the Lebanon 
Valley College students who decided, 
disregarding all other activities, to 
"go French." So, on Friday afternoon, 
December 27, five persons, all of whom 
were male students (gentilehommes 
or monsieurs), namely, John Hummel, 
Harry Miller, Richard Seiverling, 
Robert Winemiller, and John Wise, 
journeyed to Baltimore, Maryland, to 
pay a social visit to the French pro- 
fessor, Mrs. Stevenson. 

Mrs. Stevenson had given a verbal 
invitation, prior to the Christmas va- 
cation, for all of her French classes 
to partake in a buffet lunch at her 
home in Underwood Court in Balti- 
more, but transportation difficulties 
and pre-arranged social calls of vari- 
ous sorts hindered all but the above 
five from enjoying this most delicious 

Arriving in the section known as 
Underwood Court, the young men im- 
mediately encountered a most pro- 
nounced spirit of the Yuletide season, 
for all the houses in this district were 
decorated with colorful, flashing 
lights, beautifully trimmed Christ- 
mas trees, and snow-covered Biblical 
scenes. On each side of the professor's 
door, there appeared two small pine 
trees, trimmed with the usual Christ- 
mas decorations, with a stream of 
colored lights hanging above the

Battista's Recital 
Wins L. V. Applause 

On January 6, a very enthusiastic 
audience had the pleasure and thrill 
of attending a concert given by the 
new piano instructor at Lebanon Val- 
ley College, Mr. Joseph Battista. From 
the moment he made his first en- 
trance upon the stage, until the last 
applause died awr«7, one realized he 
was listening to an extremely talented 
and rising young American artist. His 
technique was superb — the brilliant 
scale work and intricate passages he 
played clearly, with precision and un- 
der complete control at all times. The 
intepretation was excellent, and each 
piece was played with the feeling that 
the performor was completely en- 
grossed in his music. He capably set 
the mood for each number from the 
early Bach chorales to the most mod- 
ern works. The audience seemed to 
enjoy his intepretation of the Polka 
from the "Golden Age Ballet" by the 
contemporary composer, Shostako- 
vitch, for they demanded that he re- 
peat it. The program was most diffi- 
cult and Mr. Battista handled it with 
complete ease, scoring a triumph here 
at L. V. C. 

Wednesday afternoon, February 7, 
Mr. Battista will give a concert at the 
Iris Club in Lancaster. 

Graduate Speaks 
To Biology Gub 

Tonight at 7:30 P. M. the Biology 
Club will hold its regular monthly 
meeting at the usual place, the biol- 
ogy lecture room. Bob Troxel, gradu- 
ate of L. V. C. and now Biologist 
with the State Botany Department, 
will lecture on plant life. His talk 
will be illustrated by the use of slides.

Men Organize 
Debating Team 
For 1941 Season 

8 New Members 

Last Tuesday, January 14, the 
Men's Debating Team held a meeting 
in Philo Hall. Donald Bartley, who 
has been appointed Debate Manager 
this year, conducted the meeting. 
Present at the meeting were several 
newcomers to the team who are inter- 
ested in debating. These were John 
Hampton, David Wells, Joseph Carr, 
Harry Miller, Samuel Gittlen, James 
Urban, Earl Reber, and David Spit- 
tal. Those present who were members 
of the team previously were Robert 
Mays, Solomon Caulker, and George 

The three topics that will be used 
in debating this year are: 

Resolved: That democracy in the 
United States can be preserved only 
through decreased government control 
of industry, labor, agriculture, and 

Resolved: That a permanent union 
of the United States and the British 
Commonwealth of Nations should im- 
mediately be established. 

Resolved: That the nations of the 
Western Hemipshere should enter in- 
to a permanent union.

Delphians Close 
Plans For Dance 

This year the beautiful ballroom of 
the Hotel Abraham Lincoln in Read- 
ing will be the site of Delphian's 
second annual dinner-dance and nine- 
teenth anniversary celebration to be 
held on Saturday, February 22 from 
6:30 to 12 o'clock. For the dinner 
transcribed music has been planned, 
and for the dance Frank 'Taylor and 
his orchestra from New Cumberland 
will play Taylor-Made Rhythm com- 
plying as far as possible with the 
requests of the girls for their favor- 
ite numbers. 

The orchestra is a young organiza- 
tion with only a few years behind it 
but it has played for quite a few im- 
portant engagements in the past in- 
cluding during the Christmas holi- 
days the Country Club, the Civic Club, 
the Penn-H arris Hotel at Harrisburg, 
the annual Doll Dance at Dickinson 
College, and the Enola Snow Ball at 
Enola. Two of our own conservatory 
students — Frank Unger, a freshman 
and Meridith Germer, a special stu- 
dent are members of the band. The 
vocalist, who has been with the band 
over a year is a charming young lady 
— Betty Brinton. 

With the favors, programs, and 
invitations chosen, there remains only 
the selection of chaperones, the noti- 
fication of alumnae, and the making 
of plans for those girls not attending 
the dance. Miss Edna Rutherford, the 
anniversary president, is pleased with 
the splendid cooperation she has re- 
ceived thus far and hopes for a din- 
ner-dance as successful as that of last 

Bucknell On Top 
In Tussle 

Crippled Valley Five 
Downed To Tune of 59-46 

Forced to start a vastly inferior 
team, Coach Intrieri's lads lost their 
third straight battle, /this time to 
Bucknell, by a 59-46 score. 

It was Bucknell's first league win 
and it came at the expense of the 
hapless Dutchmen who, in addition 
to suffering losses of basketball 
games, are severely handicapped by 
injuries and illnesses, Ted Youse is out 
with a broken wrist, Dan Staley with 
an injured ankle, and Steve Kubisen 
should be in bed because of a heavy 
cold from which he is suffering. 

The only two that are completely 
whole are Captain Mease and Ed 
Schillo, with Schillo on the border- 
line with a bad knee. 

Coach Intrieri started a revamped 
line up with the hope that the com- 
bination would click. Mease and Wei- 
ler started at the forward posts, Kub- 
isen at center, and Schillo and Ma- 
tala at the guard positions. 

Kubisen, suffering from a cold was 
replaced by Gollam who performed 
creditably in that spot. But the 
changed line-up was unable to check 
the scoring spree of Joe Bugas, the 
Bison pivot man. 

Mease and Schillo carried the Val- 
ley scoring burden tallying 19 and 
14 points respectively. Mease seemed 
to have found the range at last after 
failing to hit the hoop successfully in 
previous games. Schillo too showed his 
versatility by handling the guard spot 
adeptly and still found time to do 
some heavy scoring. 

The Valley was outscored in every 
period and at no time could present 
a consistent threat to the Bisons who 
ran /roughshod oyer the Blue and 
White, their joy being unrepressed 
after their first league conquest. 

New Ink Spots 
Attend Meeting 

The Green Blotter Club met with 
its new members at the home of Dr. 
George Struble on Tuesday, January 
14. These members chosen from those 
submitting manuscripts at a special 
meeting held on January 7 were the 
following: Seniors — Louella Schindel 
and Marlin Espenshade; freshmen — 
Harry Miller, Bruce Souders, Ethel 
Ehrlich, and Marion Kreider. 

The club also decided at its meeting 
of January 7 that it would extend the 
time for sophomore candidates to 
hand in their manuscripts for consid- 
eration. Sophomores are to note that 
any club member or Dr. Struble will 
accept their work on or before Febru- 
ary 18. 

At the meeting of the Ink Spots 
held at Dr. Struble's the feature of 
the evening was the reading of the 
"round robin" letter in which all 
members had a part of its composi- 
tion while on their summer vacations. 

La Vie Collegienne joins the 
student body and faculty in ex- 
pressing its deepest sympathy 
for Professor Frederic Miller in 
the sudden loss of his mother.

During the past few months nu- 
merous editorials have appeared in 
this column lamenting the lack of 
school spirit on campus. When we 
discovered that our verbal admoni- 
tion had no effect, La Vie decided to 
try some active measures to remedy 
the existing conditions. The contest 
for new cheers is the first step in the 
new regime. Elsewhere in the paper 
you will discover the rules for the 
contest. If you have been one of those 
many persons who has mourned the 
loss of enthusiasm, try your hand at 
writing verse. We assure you that the 
English department will not be con- 
sulted in the attempt to determine 
the winners. If you do not take this 
opportunity to revive the old fight, 
further remedies will be administered 
which may not be as pleasant. 


Ever since the first college news- 
paper was published, editors have felt 
it their sacred duty to write two ed- 
itorials each year immedilately be- 
fore the days of reckoning. Not that 
anybody ever heeded the advise given, 
but because they felt the need of 
personal encouragement, this tradi- 
tion was rigidly followed. This year 
we don't intend giving advise to any- 
body. All we want to do is to wish 
everybody the utmost success in every 
examination. The only thing you can 
do now is pray for lenient professors. 

I.R.C. Chooses 
Cabinet Members 

The cabinet of the International Re- 
lations Club has selected three new 
members to work with them. They 
are Dorothea Donough, a senior, Earl 
Boltz, a junior, and Franklin Pats- 
chke, a sophomore. 

Membership on this cabinet is lim- 
ited both in number and by selecting 
its constituents by merit of manu- 
scripts which they submit. In this way 
those more acutely interested in stu- 
dying world affairs may take a more 
active part than the regular club 
members. It is also from this cabinet 
that the officers of the International 
Relations group are chosen. The cab- 
inet has one meeting a month as well 
as the one in conjuncion with the en- 
tire club.

jazz notes 

by Maurie Erdman 

Once again after a too brief vacation the gang buckles down to some 
hard work. Many problems and questions harass our over-taxed minds as 
the hour of reckoning draws near. One such question arises in my mind, 
and it is a major one. What music is there to discuss when all we hear is 

"Frenesi," "There I Go" and a few worse tunes. That ASCAP 

has just about wrecked our radio enjoyment by withdrawing tunes such as 
"A Handful of Stars" and a dozen others that we were just beginning to 

Perhaps you are wondering how an organization such as this one can 
completely wreck our popular music. To start the explanation we'll let you 
in on something. The ASCAP, our dearly beloved institution, is the musi- 
cians' C. I. 0. or A. F. of L. However, it's the A. F. of M. only from the 
publishers standpoint. The imposing initials represent The American So- 
ciety of Composers, Authors and Musicians. The rival organization en- 
couraged by the broadcasting networks is the B. M. I. (Broadcast Music, 
Inc.). It seems as thoough a man named Irvin Berlin started an organiza- 
tion to protect music writers and publishers from the thousands (well may- 
be four or five) of villains who would take advantage of this group by 
forcing them to sell their music at cut-rate prices. Since the organization 
is about 60 years old any music written before that date is beyond the jur- 
isdiction of the organization we have all come to love so dearly. The re- 
sult may be heard when any of our pet bands come on the air. 

Last night I had the pleasure of hearing a popular band come on the 
air with his old theme song. His first rendition on a fifteen minute pro- 
gram was an eight-minute arrangement of "Tales of the Vienna Woods." 
His second selection was "There I Go." To conclude his program he played 
a piece of music that must have been inspired by a nightmare. Who is to 
blame? Well you guess. 

Pretty soon there will be a case coming to one of the Federal Courts 
for a violation of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. Courts are slow but sure 
in America and justice will be done. But what are we to do until then for 
dance music? Perhaps the stations could whip up a good serial on the Life 
and Loves of the Dodo Bird until the silly scrap is terminated. On the other 
hand an explanation of Einstein by Einstein might prove interesting. If this 
ruckus doesn't soon get settled we might try picketing. 

Stage Whispers 

On Monday evening the Wig and Buckle held a very novel and inter- 
esting meeting. It was the first, we hope, of a series of these meetings. As 
a special feature of this program was a play directed by the student di- 
rector, Frank Shenk. The audience was asked to give their criticisms of 
the play. Not so many of the students complied with this request for from 
the papers received it seems to be unanimous that the play was a success. 
Special mention was made of the effect of two adjacent rooms, given by the 
parted curtain, and of the make-up. Unfavorable criticism touched upon the 
rapidity with which the lines were recited, the impression given by the men 
that they had too many hands for them to control, and the rather unreal 

fight between Adonijah and Charles Before the opening of the play 

a lecture on the art of make-up was given by Doctor Struble. Even though 
there were four subjects, this did not tend to become in the least bit bor- 
ing, and many of the listeners remarked about the value of this feature 

A summary of the material found in the magazine, "Stage," which has been 
recently added to our library was given in an informal and light manner 
Perhaps the most outstanding thing on the whole program was the mono- 
logue given by Ellen Ruppersberger, which was entitled "In the Subway" by 
Elmer Rice. The manner in which Miss Ruppersberger presented this quite 
dramatic piece of tragic material was thoroughly professional. She put so 
much into it that several members of the audience expressed the fact that 
it gave them chills, which is precisely the experience of yours truly.

Roughness Characterized Games, 
Youse, Staley Injured 


Coincidental with the onset of a 
new year, the L. V. C. quintet inau- 
gurated its 1941 basketball season 
with an impressive 39-33 win over a 
scrappy Moravian team. 

Coach Mike Intrieri presented to 
the public the same five lads that did 
so well last year in this mad basket- 
ball world. They continued their fine 
worl< by defeating a team that al- 
ready had several games under their 
belt. The game was a rough affair 
with the players on either team ready 
to toss a fist at the close of the bat- 

After Mease had started the scor- 
ing with a two-pointer, Krause and 
McConologne collaborated to run up 
an 8-2 advantage. Kubisen and Ma- 
tala each tallied a deuce to bring the 
score to 8-6 at the end of the first 

The strangeness of the floor began 
to wear off and the Dutchmen pro- 
ceeded to locate the hoop more read- 
ily. Mease tied the score on a nice 
one handed stab. McConologne and 
Kubisen started a shooting contest to 
run the score up to 14-12. Krause 
scored on a foul, which Youse imme- 
diately matched making the board 
read 15-13 in Moravian's favor. After 
the Greyhounds tallied another foul, 
Schillo flipped in a field goal, as the 
half ended, the score, 16-15 in favor 
of the lads from Bethlehem. 

The third quarter was a different 
story. The Valley went on a scoring 
spree that saw them tally ten points 
in the first four minutes of play. Ed 
Schillo developed a hot hand to throw 
up five of those ten points. Mease, 
Kubisen and Youse aided with some 
nice follow-up shots. By outscoring 
Moravian 15 to 10 in the fast third 
stanza, the Dutchmen posted a 30-26 
lead at the three-quarters mark. It 
was Mease and Kubisen who kept up 
Schillo's pace in the later minutes of 
the third period. 

Another scoring threat was unveil- 
ed in the final stanza when Don Sta- 
ley came barging through to tally 
seven markers. Youse and Mease 
each contributed a foul to complete 
the Valley's cause in the home stretch 
drive. For Moravian it was Krause 
who tallied all the points. The game 
became rather heated in the waning 
minutes, both teams refusing to shoot 
fouls but rather preferring to take the 
ball out of bounds in an attempt to 
cake a deuce. As the final whistle 
blew, the Valley had possession of the 
ball after Staley had caged a field 

Krause, of Moravian, stole the 
show with a total of nineteen points, 
most of which were tallied on a jump 
shot that was most difficult to block. 
McConologne aided his teammate with 
eight counters all of which came in 
the first half. 

For the Valley, it was Steve Kubi- 
sen playing a bang-up floor game and 
counting ten times, that led the Blue 
and White parade. Mease was next 
in line with nine markers. 

The Valley operating together for 
the first time showed the lack of some 
actual competition, but not the lack 
of adequate coaching or team spirit. 


As the seconds ticked away to end 
the ball game, "Smoke" MacMahon 
of Ursinus, tossed a one-handed stab 
into the basket to inaugurate league 
play, by handing Lebanon Valley a 
defeat in its initial contest. 

Ursinus, the underdog of the lea- 
gue, played a close-guarding, hard 
ball game to post a 28-26 victory over 

the highly favored Dutchmen. The 
game was a nip and tuck battle all the 
way, and it was not until the last 
five seconds that the issue was set- 
tled. At that moment Mr. MacMahon 
politely tossed up a push shot, after 
the count had been knotted at 26 all 
by Ralph Mease, to clinch the affair. 

The game will probably go down as 
the roughest contest the league has 
ever sponsored, with no holds barred. 
The referees were totally incapable 
of holding the players in check and 
fists flew more than once. Fouling 
also played a prominent part in the 
tussle. It was via the foul route that 
Steve Kubisen and Bill Gollam, his 
substitute, were banished from the 
game. Late in the final stanza Ed 
Schillo was requested to leave the 
premises on "general principles." 
Hutchinson of the Bears was also re- 
lieved of his playing duties after four 

An indication of the action of the 
players and spectators is readily real- 
ized when the fact that it required 
thirty minutes to play the last three 
minutes of the ball game is made 
known. Spectators and players dash- 
ed onto the floor on six occasions in 
the fading minutes to create havoc 
and disorder. When the contest was 
concluded, a group of over-zealous 
fans attempted to mob the Blue and 
White lads but the threat was thwart- 
ed. The spectators even remained un- 
til the boys came out from the dres- 
sing rooms. 

Largely responsible for the trouble 
that developed was the closeness of 
the score. At no time did any team 
hold more than a three point margin. 
The Valley held a 6-4 lead the first 
quarter, but were outscored in the 
second stanza 9-6 to trail 13-12 at the 
intermission. At the beginning of the 
final frame Ursinus maintained its 
one point margin leading 22-21. The 
Bears held a 26-23 lead with four 
minutes to play. Schillo tossed a foul 
to raise the ante to 26-24. With 20 
seconds to play Smith intercepted a 
pass and tossed it to Mease who tied 
the score with one of his patented 
stabs. Then came MacMahon's shot 
that proved to be the spark that light- 
ed the fire. 

Mease led the scoring with eleven 
counters, on five field goals and one 
foul toss. MacMahon, Ursinus for- 
ward, ran a close second with ten 
points. Schillo aided the cause with 
nine markers. 
L. V. C.-F. & M. 

With both teams playing a brand of 
ball that completely disgusted the 
paying spectators, Lebanon Valley 
outslept F. & M. to lose its second 
league tussle, 33-25. 

In addition to the loss of the game, 
the Dutchmen suffered two other 
losses. Ted Youse, a steadying in- 
fluence in the back court, was ruled 
out for the rest of the season when he 
broke his wrist in an attempt to cut 
into the basket, but instead tripped 
over the leg of one of the F. & M. 
men and fell on his wrist. The other 
loss was Don Staley who suffered a 
severe ankle injury that x-rays have 
shown to be torn ligaments which will 
keep the varsity guard on the side- 
lines for at least three weeks. 

The Dutchmen seemed to be pos- 
sessed with a listlessness that caused 
them to miss easy shots that at other 
times they would have made. Their 
passing was exceptionally erratic, 
throwing the ball into the hands of the 
enemy on several occasions. When 
the lethargy was somewhat shaken

With the induction of a new year 
we conform to convention and review 
the results of campus athletics during 
the past 365 days. As an introduc- 
tion, we might mention the fact that 
our athletes compiled the grand per- 
centage of .327, winning seventeen 
contests out of fifty-two that they par- 
ticipated in. 

Beginning the court season on Jan- 
uary 6, the Valley quintet lost its ini- 
tial game to F. and M. The sopho- 
more five continued its losing ways 
in the next three games, dropping bat- 
tles to Bucknell, Ursinus, and Gettys- 
burg, none by more than four points. 
Coach Intrieri's cohorts found the 
range at Dickinson, winning a close 
one in an overtime period. Gettys- 
burg was next to feel the power of 
the Dutchmen, losing by a 39-34 score, 
in a game that saw fists, as well as 
basketballs, fly around the Lebanon 
High School gym. 

Muhlenberg dampened the Blue and 
White spirit somewhat, when they 
brought in a smooth passing team 
that kept the middle of the Valley 
defense well opened all night, and as 
a result took the ball game 52-39. 
Undaunted, the Dutchmen came back 
into the win column, when Ralph 
Mease led a first half attack on the 
Albright Lions at Reading. The win- 
ning fever continued as the quintet 
eased by Bucknell, F. and M., and Mo- 
ravian. Muhlenberg again came into 
the picture, as they extinguished any 
title hopes Blue and White fans might 
have had, by a smashing 47-29 vic- 
tory over the Valley. 

Lebanon Valley finished out its sea- 
son in a blaze of glory, as they down- 
ed a fast fading Ursinus team, that 
did have title hopes until they tan- 
gled with "der poys." Albright was 
next in line, and the Valley earned a 
47-40 victory to post its eighth win 
as against six losses for the season. 
Gratifying to note was the fact that 
Ralph Mease copped scoring honors 
in the loop, to take up where Raymie 
Frey had left off the year before. 

The Freshmen, on the other hand, 
could do very little in the way of 
winning ball games, as they posted a 
season's record of two wins as against 
eleven losses. They did prevent the 
opposition from defeating them by 
more than ten points on no less than 
seven occasions. Highlights of their 
performances were the antics of one 
Bill Olexy, the Corrigan act of Silli- 
man, and the maneuvers of Sea Bis- 
cuit Beckner. 

Fencers Bow To Foe 

Facing the superior forces of La- 
fayette College, the local fencers fell 
on Saturday to the match score of 16- 
2. The opponents coached by a former 
Czechoslovakian Sabre Champion, 
were excellent fighters and deserving 
of praise both for skill and sports- 
manship. Following is the summary 
of scoring: 

Sabre bouts: 

Goldring, Lafayette, defeated Zim- 
merman, L. V. C, 5-3. 

Herbert, Lafayette, defeated Rapp, 
L. V. C, 5-3. 

Barnes, Lafayette, defeated Bryce, 
L. V. C, 5-1. 

Goldring, Lafayette, defeated Rapp, 
L. V. C, 5-4. 

Herbert, Lafayette, defeated Bryce, 
L. V. C, 5-3. 

Barnes, Lafayette, defeated Zim- 
merman, L. V. C, 5-3. 

Goldring, Lafayette, defeated Bryce, 
L. V. C, 5-3. 

Herbert, Lafayette, defeated Zim- 
merman, L. V. C, 5-2. 

Barnes, Lafayette, defeated Rapp, 
L. V. C, 5-4. 

Foils bouts: 

Steel, Lafayette, defeated Phil]* 
L. V. C, 5-2. Ps - 

Gillette, Lafayette, defeated p 
man, L. V. C, 5-4. ^ 
Antinello, Lafayette, defeated F r ; t 
sche, L. V. C, 5-3. 

Master, Lafayette, defeated pvi 
lips, L. V. C, 5-1. 

Steel, Lafayette, defeated Erdma 
L. V. C, 5-4. ' 

Gillette, Lafayette, defeated F r j t 
sche, L. V. C, 5-3. 

Phillips, L. V. C, defeated Anti- 
nello, Lafayette, 5-3. 

Zimmerman, L. V. C, defeated 
Steel, Lafayette, 5-3. 

Master, Lafayette, defeated Erd 
man, L. V. C, 5-2. 

What must be noted is the fact 
that the Lafayette team was a much 
faster group than the Philadelphia 
team. Even through it all our fen- 
cers held the individual scoring to a 
loss by 25 points, the exact loss suf- 
fered at the hands of a weaker team 
on December 7. What does it show? 
It shows advancement is being made 
by the L. V| team. Go to it boys and 
give the F. & M. team an even closer 
battle on February 8.

Frosh Basketeers 
Jy/tete Out Defeat 

The 1941 Blue and White Freshman 
g aS j { etball team gained a 28-23 vic- 
tory i n ^ s i* 1 ^ 3 ^ con test of the year 
^rith Hershey Industrial School in the 
gpacious Lebanon High School gym. 
Coach "Jerry" Frock placed a start- 
ing team on the floor that averaged 
well over six feet in height. The start- 
ing five of Newman, Gilly, Dorazio, 
Russo, and Morrill, have all had plen- 
ty of experience in their high school 
careers and showed real promise in 
their first game together. 

The towering Dutchmen had the 
advantage from the start, but nearly 
lost the game when the Spartans came 
back fighting to outscore the Valley 
in the final period. At one time 
tne lead of the L. V. aggregation was 
cut to 4 points. 

A first quarter lead of 8-5 was in- 
creased to 15-8 at intermission time. 
Despite substitutions by Frock in the 
third period the Chocolate Town boys 
lagged behind 23-12 at the three quar- 
ter mark. The last quarter splurge 
of the Industrial School team was 
halted when the first strngers re-en- 
tered the game. 

Newman scored 8 points and Gilly 
and Dorazio each contributed 6 count- 
ers to lead the Frosh. Potteiger and 
Ainsworth were the best shots for 
the losers. The reserve power of the 
first-year men will undoubtedly be of 
great value in tighter games. 

The Frosh began a game losing 
streak when they dropped their first 
contest of the year to Ursinus Frosh 
last Wednesday evening on the lat- 
ter 's court. The Blue and White year- 
lings were apparently hopelessly be- 
hind at half-time and dropped still 
further to the rear by the beginning 
of the final period when the visitors 
led 34-20. Light, the Miller boys, Kern 
and Dorazio outscored the Ursinus 
boys 14-7 in the last quarter to cut 
the lead 41-37 at the whistle. The 
Rorer twins sank a total of 16 points 
to lead the winners. Dorazio and Rus- 
so were each credited with 7 points 
for the Valley. 

The second defeat of the season was 
handed to the Valley yearlings at the 
expense of the F. and M. Frosh last 
Saturday evening. The Blue and 
White boys were sadly outscored from 
the start of the contest. The first 
quarter score stood at 11-3 in favor 
of the visitors. By the end of the 
second period the Lancaster outfit led 
16-13 when an L. V. netted 10 points 
to opponents' five. 

The Frockmen went to pieces in 
the third canto as they blew numer- 
ous shots and failed to follow up shots 
* nd take the ball off the bankboards. 
A final spurt in the last period that 
ne tted 13 points to F. and M.'s 8 fail- 
^ to erase the 27-15 score posted by 
^ e Floyd-coached team at the start 
this period. Harry Miller played 
* fighting floor game for L. V. while 

Or azio and Newman each accounted 
p 0r !0 points. Mackin and Byers led 

• an <i M. with 10 apiece.

Juniors Lead Day 
Student B. B. League 

Two games in the Day Students' 
League played just prior to the holi- 
days saw the Juniors increase their 
lead over the other three classes by 
topping the Seniors 40-27 in a hard 
fought contest. The Frosh upset the 
highly regarded Sophomore team by 
a 51-44 count. 

The Juniors took a lead of 15-8 in 
the first quarter that they never re- 
linguished. By half-time the Seniors 
were still behind 22-15. The Juniors 
outscored the Srs. 9-4 in the next 
period to lead 31-19 going into the last 
quarter. In an over anxious attempt 
to run up the score in the last canto 
the victors missed a number of good 
shots. Shay rang up 24 points for the 
Juniors while Boltz contributed 12 
from back court. Rakow with 11 
Cv>unters was the best the Seniors 
could produce. 

In the other contest a determined 
group of Frosh humbled the Sophs 
after posting a 11-8 score, at quarter. 
Intermission found the yearlings still 
ahead 30-27. Even scoring took place 
in the third quarter but the Frosh 
surged ahead to win 51-44. Carbaugh 
with 15 points and Unger with 14 
showed up best for the Frosh. Little 
put on a one-man act in sinking 23 

















The Day Student Sophomore basket- 
ball team created a sensation last 
week when the league leading Jun- 
iors fell before the last period attack 
of the second year men, 46-45. Re- 
serve power spelled victory for the 
Sophs. The losers posted quarter 
scores of 15-9, 29-25, and 39-35. The 
winners were led by Steve Metro with 
18 points. Little aided the cause with 
10. Boltz and Shay with 19 and 18 
counters to their credit sparkled for 
the Juniors. 

The other game, between the Frosh 
and the Seniors, ended in a rout when 
the latter wilted after holding the 
Frosh to a 13-10 lead at half. Both 
teams scored 8 points in the third 
period to bring the score to 21-18. 
Edwards, the mainstay of the Frosh 
attack, sank 5 field goals in the last 
quarter when his mates ran wild. Ed- 
ward's total of 14 points led the 
scoring for the victors. Rakow and 
derrick with 16 and 10 counters did 
11 the scoring for the Seniors.

Seniors Pile Up 
Score In Dorm Games 

Two games in the Dorm League 
were played last Tuesday evening. The 
Frosh eked out a victory over the 
Sophs 44-42 and the Seniors wiped 
out the Juniors 106-41. 

The Frosh team, a fast and hard 
fighting five outfounght the stubborn 
Soph outfit from the start of the ball 
game. Smith and Neidig led the first 
year men with 17 and 13 points re- 
spectively. The best defensive game 
was played in this conflict. 

The Juniors fell before the on- 
slaught of the high scoring Senior 
team that dominated the play. Two 
records were set when the Seniors 
racked up 106 counters and when Bob 
Wright collected a total of 43 points. 

Play was resumed on Thursday 
evening as the Seniors continued to 
set the pace in the league by trimming 
a humiliated Soph team 101-42 
Wright again stood out with 30 points 
for the Seniors. "Porky" Grow and 
Conley contributed 25 counters each 
for the winning cause. Beckner was

Well friends, here it is a new year and with it come the usual resolu- 
tions — those that are most readily broken. However, there is one thought 
that remains foremost in our mind — to revive a fast fading college spirit 
on the Blue and White campus. 

We hate to assume the role of a lecturer and point out faults in the dron- 
ing tone of the professor that puts you to sleep most quickly, but we are of 
the opinion that if this column does not take the initiative, nobody else will. 
Within a few days, a couple of North Hall lassies will probably pounce on 
the writer of this and point out their enthusiasm in L. V. C. athletics. Don't 
worry girls, your efforts have not been in vain. Your bunch of noise was 
evident at Ursinus in the midst of that hostile crowd, and we admire you 
for your work. 

Unfortunately those two girls form a very small minority of the L.< V. 
campus. Can you people just imagine how much noise 500 people can make, 
if they all yell as loud as the aforementioned two? 

You know, in order to write this pillar, believe it or not, we've contacted 
a lot of ball players and watched their reactions before and after a game. 
During the pre-game period the lads are keyed up, their nerves are jumpy, 
they're "in the pink." After the game they're too tired to be keyed! up, they 
are, at that time beginning to relax, and to feel the strain. 

Let's look in just before the game. One fellow is tying his shoe strings 
time and time again. Another is holding his head, and stamping his feet. 
Over in a corner we see a player pounding his fist in the palm of his other 
hand. Then there's the fellow that's trying to sleep to relax. These fellows 
have gone through a lot of conditioning and we should show our gratitude to 
them for giving up a lot of the better things in life for the ball game. If 
these same fellows hear the crowd upstairs, cheering them, telling them,, 
"We're behind you fellows, win or lose," they are going to do a much better 
job. But if nobody lets them know that they're rooting for them, they will! 
immediately adopt the attitude that nobody cares how they fare, so why 
worry about the thing. 

Our quintet has suffered two losses, and also the services of two varsity 
performers. They're definitely in the hole right now. That should be our 
cue to get out and get on the band wagon. 

Take Ursinus as an example. They are supposed to be the trash of the 
league, but they certainly aren't assuming that position. They've handed 
heavy favorites reverses, and will be willing to wager that the spirit of the 
student body has a lot to do with their success. 

There is a portion of our student body that is content to sit back in their 
comfortable little nooks, play bridge, and listen to the gossip. They don't even 
know that basketball games are being played and what's more care less! 

The Conserve has cooperated by offering a little music for the affairs. 
Now all the rest of the college has to do is get together at the ball games. It 
won't take any more effort to walk down to the section of the bleachers be- 
hind the team than it will to walk down the opposite side of the floor. 

Well, we're sorry if we've bored you, but if you've been bored by this 
column then you're the one we're talking about. Our Dutchmen don't play 
at home until February 6, so you have lots of time to think it over. We'll 
be looking for you at the ball game. 

That just about ends our session for the day. Our sermon was a little 
long so will skip the rest of the service. 

the best bet for the losers as he hit 
the hoop for 22 tallies. 

This contest was followed by a real 
battle between the Juniors and Frosh 
as a nip and tuck game thrilled the 

crowd. Neidig and Smith again led 
the yearlings to victory 45-37. The 
Frosh pulled ahead in the last quarter 
after being held in check in the first 
three periods.

composer who won a Guggenheim Fel- 
lowship a few months after his "Bal- 
lad for Americans" made a radio sen- 
sation, returns to the air in person 
for his first regular series on the cur- 
rent CBS folk music program, "Back 
Where I Come From." 

Robinson will be master-of-ceremon- 
ies on the program, presenting Burl 
Ives, hobo singer, the Golden Gate 
Quartet, and other performers of au- 
thentic American folk music. The pro- 
gram is heard three times a week, 
Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 
10:30 to 10:45 P. M., EST. 

Robinson's musical successes last 
year came after seven years of strug- 
gle. After graduating from the Uni- 
versity of Washington in 1933, Robin- 
son joined a little theater group call- 
ed the "Theater of Action." The 15 
members of the group gave dramas 
on street- corners, or in church base- 
ments — wherever they could gather a 
crowd. The group was paid anything 
from $5 to $50 a performance, just 
enough to feed its members on a com- 
"umity stew.

Dr. Marshall Sights 
Receeding Horizons 

Tuesday morning we had the first 
extended chapel period of the new 
year when Dr. Roy K. Marshall, 
assistant director of Fels Planetarium 
in the Franklin Institute in Phila- 
delphia and a noted lecturer spoke on 
the subject "Receeding Horizons." 
He spoke of the first calendars and 
of the accuracy of some of the men 
of those days despite the crude instru- 
ments with which they were forced to 
work. Hershel, about one hundred 
years ago, made an estimate of the 
number of stars in the sky with a 
huge telescope which he had made. We 
are living on one planet that makes 
up a galaxy which is similiar to a 
small Milky Way. The Milky Way it- 
self is composed of 100,000,000,000 
planets which is the reason that it is 
so easily seen in the period that it 
is visible in our hemisphere. Dr. 
Marshall stressed the fact that rather 
than man being an insignificant fig- 
ure in this immense universe, he rules 
the universe with his great intellect. 

Editor Reports 
Copy For Quittie 
Near Completion 

Progress of the 1941 Quittie is re- 
ported by editor Guinivan, as up to 
his best expectations. A majority of 
the copy has been completed, checked 
by the section editors, and handed 
over to the proof reader for the last 
process before going to the printers. 
The section editors, Geyer, Hemin- 
way, Shaner, and Dobbs, aided Guini- 
van in completing all possible work 
during the past week. 

Informal snaps of the juniors, 
which were taken by Mr. Ullery, are 
almost finished, while all must be tak- 
en before semester examinations. 

Retakes of the formal pictures, 
which must be done because of fire 
in the Zamsky Studios, will be be- 
gun at the earliest possible date in 
the new semester. All juniors are re- 
quested to make out their schedules 
immediately in order that a schedule 
may be arranged for their sittings. 
To compensate for the delay due to 
this loss, cooperation in this matter 
will assure the scheduled production 
of the yearbook.

teams, will be described by Mel Al-

fifteen minutes of the second game 
of each double-header. The program 
will be heard from 11 to 11:15 P. M. 
on the nights of the games, starting 
in mid-January. 

A member of Columbia's sports 
staff, Allen broadcast the home games 
of the Yankees and Giants over 
WABC, Columbia's New York station, 
last summer. The basketball broad- 
casts will be part of Columbia's 
nightly sports review, "Sports Time." 

Caswell Adams, captain of one of 
Columbia's "Choose Up Sides" sports 
quiz teams, is the boxing authority 
of the New York Herald-Tribune. 
Adams began his newspaper career 
by covering Fordham University news 
while still an undergraduate . . . . 
Chester Stratton, star of Columbia's 
"City Desk," is another ex-newspap- 
erman. One of his most vivid mem- 
ories is a midnight assignment which 
brought him out of bed and down to 
police headquarters in his pajamas, 
because his mother had sent his 
trousers out to be pressed.

W.A.A. And Vs 
Plan Barn Dance 

The Women's Athletic Association, 
in conjunction with the Y. W. C. A. 
and Y. M. C. A., are planning a barn 
dance which will be held sometime 
during the early part of the second 
semester. The affair is to be a regu- 
lar old— time square dance and carni- 
val. A caller and a fiddler will add 
to the "years ago" atmosphere. 


Plans for two of the three Wig and 
Buckle one act plays, directed by sen- 
iors, have been altered. The Monkey's 
Paw, directed by Marlin Espenshade, 
will not be given at all while the oth- 
er play, The Truth About Women, 
directed by Jeanette Kalbach, will be 
given at a later date. In addition, 
the Wig and Buckle Club is going to 
present three one act plays sometime 
during the second week of February.

a "wonderland of color" such as one 
might see in the motion pictures or

Upon entering the professor's house 
the students were immediately im- 
pressed by the architectural beauty 
and designs of the various rooms, and 
while awaiting the arrival of some of 
the other students, the five travelers 
enjoyed the comforts of a most mod-

off, the Valley was blessed with an- 
other disaster, the injury of Youse 
and Staley. Then to further compli- 
cate masters, Matala, Youse's substi- 
tute, took an early shower along with 
Fritz Fox, of F. & M., when they at- 
tempted to engage in a bit of fisti- 
cuffs. No damage was done except 
that the L. V. defense was weakened. 

The game started strangely when 
the Annvillids missed everything but 
the floor losing enough on those shots 
to post a nice lead. Trailing 8-0, 
Staley took a long stab at the basket 
and swished a deuce through the 
nets just as the buzzer sounded. The 
score read F. & M., 8; L. V. C, 2. 

F. & M. maintained its six point 
advantage at the intermission. Both 
teams presented a rugged brand of 
basketball in the second quarter, scor- 
ing six points apiece. 

The third stanza, the ball game 
showed symptoms of coming to life,

Sophs Present 
Winter Dance 

Dartmouth has its Winter Sports 
Carnival, but Lebanon Valley has its 
Soph Hop with the same theme. Fri- 
day night amid a welter of skates, 
skiis, and sleds, under a canopy of 
streamers half a hundred couples for- 
got approaching exams and danced 
away their cares in the Annville High 
gym. The music for the occasion was 
supplied by a ten piece orchestra and 
a female vocalist under the direction 
of Jimmy Seidler. Thus began the 
round of class dances that ends with 
the Junior Prom and the Senior Bail 
in May. Various comments have been 
heard about the dance with most of 
them being favorable. The outstand- 
ing criticism was that the band 
dragged most of the slow pieces at 
the outset, but they improved consid- 
erably after the intermission. What 
they lacked in rhythm, however, they 
made up for in loudness, which at 
times almost became blaring.

Class Chooses 
^lay-day Theme 

Phyllis Dietzler 
Suggests Idea From 
"Arabian Nights" 

Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp 
has been selected for the 1941 May 
pay theme at the suggestion of Miss 
Phyllis Dietzler, a Junior in the Con- 
servatory of Music. The annual festi- 
vities this year will take place May 
10 and all activities, including schol- 
arship exams, will be pushed forward 
to that date. 

Attempting to evade the military 
and serious topics and travel into the 
land of make-believe, this theme dif- 
fers from former ones and includes 
such dances as the fire dance, the for- 
tune tellers, and genii. Miss Dietzler, 
its planner and, consequently, gener-j.1 
chairman, has been outstanding in 
music work since her arrival here 
three years ago, and, according to 
the originality represented in the 
theme, should prove a very able lead- 
er for the event. 

Runners-up for selection were the 
themes of Summertime, suggested by 
Robert Bieber and Rae Sechrist; 
Southern Masquerade, by Mary Herr; 
Television Around the World, J. Ed- 
ward McCurdy; and Evolution of the 
Dance, George Moore and Marguerite

Five Dollar Prize For 
Best Cheer 

Following the recent trend of ideas 
put into operation by magazines, 
newspapers and broadcasting stations, 
La Vie sponsored a cheer-writing con- 
test to which four persons responded. 
Seeing so small a number of individ- 
uals participating, a loyal supporter 
of L. V. C. offers through La Vie a 
five-dollar prize for the cheer selected 

Hoping to receive a few more en- 
tries, in view of the reward more 
profitable than glory, La Vie will ex- 
tend the contest until Tuesday, Feb. 
11 at 1:00 o'clock. Remember, stu- 
dents, that if someone has enough 
school spirit k> offer five dollars for 
a cheer, you should have enough en- 
ergy to go for it. Entries either may 
be placed in the contributor's box in 
the Library or handed to the editor 
of La Vie. 

Kindler Conducts 
National Symphony 
In Lebanon Concert 

The National Symphony Orchestra, 
under the baton of Dr. Hans Kindler, 
will make its bow to the members of 
the Lebanon Community Concert As- 
sociation tomorrow night at 8:15 in 
the Lebanon High School auditorium. 

Founded in Washington, D. C, in 
1931 by Dr. Kindler, the group has 
been described as an "Orchestral Pro- 
digy" in its short period of seven sea- 
sons. The courage, tireless enthusi- 
asm, and musical genius of its con- 
ductor combined with its situation in 
the Nation's Capital, where it plays 
for thousands of visitors from all over 
the world, has brought acclaim to the 
National Symphony Orchestra as one 
of the outstanding symphonic organi- 
zations in this country. Its concert 


tours, spread over more than a dozen 
states and Canada, have made it na- 
tional and international in its scope. 

Hans Kindler, through his work m 
the past seven years, has established 
himself as the greatest of the young- 
er conductors. Prior to 1931 he had , 
reached the pinnacle of individual '

Muhlenberg Asks L. V. 
To Be "Sports 

Dr. Levering Tyson, President of 
Muhlenberg College, has taken the in 
itiative in suggesting that better 
sportsmanship might be displayed at 
the League games of the Eastern Con- 
ference if a concentrated effort were 
made. He has contacted Dr. Lynch as 
well as the other college presidents 
concerning this matter. As a chal- 
lenge he presented the most hearty 
and appreciated cooperation of Ursi- 
nus at a recent game. 

The following is the handbill given 
to all Muhlenberg students. It is sug- 
gested that Lebanon Valley follow this 
same code for sportsmanlike conduct. 

Intercollegiate athletics should es- 
tablish and maintain friendly rela- 
tionships between competing institu- 
tions. If this does not result as the 
games are played, there is no justi- 
fication for them. In this spirit Muh-

New Campus Heads 

Chapel Vote Discovers 
Outstanding Persons 

Two weeks ago the student body of 
the college was called upon to cast 
their votes for members whom they 
thought possessed superior traits of 
merit and quality. After tabulating 
the ballots, the results are recorded 
as follows: 

Best girl in athletics — Phoebe Gey- 
er or "Pete," as she is known through- 
out the campus, has been chosen the 
most outstanding feminine "sportster" 
having shown her ability on the bas- 
ketball court and superiority on th-3 
hockey field. "Pete" is a member of 
the Junior Class, enrolled in the Eng- 
lish Department. 

Best boy in athletics — Again "Ed" 
Schillo has been chosen the most out- 
standing masculine offer to the sports 
world. A Business Administration 
student, "Ed" has received the dis- 
tinction of being the best pigskin 
punter in small collegiate circles, a 
hard-hitting baseball player, and an 
outstanding basketball forward. 

Outstanding girl leader — Floda 
Trout, a Senior and major in Eng- 
lish, has earned this distinction hav- 
ing held offices of president in botn 
the Jigger Board and Green Blotter 
Clubs. Besides these, Floda has been 
quite active in play productions dur- 
ing her four years at the college, di- 
recting some plays and taking lead- 
ing roles in others. Miss Trout was 
also one of the few students of our 
college who was included in the na- 
tion-wide publication, "Who's Who In 
American Colleges."

Why are the editorials so few and 
far between during the last few 
weeks? Has the editor run out of 
ideas? By no means, however, be- 
cause of lack of space for the abund- 
ance of news, the editorial has to 
share its prestige with the other de- 
partments of the trade. 

Faculty Includes 
Courses In Spanish 

At the faculty meeting held on Feb- 
ruary 4, it was decided that Spanish 
would be offered at Lebanon Valley 
next year. Madame Stella Stevenson 
will teach Spanish 06 and, if the stud- 
ents are prepared for advanced work, 

The growing trade relations with 
South America together with world 
affairs make the introduction of such 
a course most opportune. It is point- 
ed out that an increasing interest in 
the Spanish language is evident thru- 
out our country.

Elected at the Kalo meeting on Feb-

who will serve for the second semes-

jazz notes 

by Maurie Erdman 

After a long breathing spell marred by a few major and minor exams 
we get back in the groove with some words about a band that keeps your 
toes moving for hours after the music has stopped. This fast rising swing 
band has graced our campus at a number of dances that have always been a 
marked success. Name? Chet Lincoln, of Lancaster (and a thousand 
other places over the East where he has played). 

This handsome, pleasant young man leads a 13-piece outfit including 5 
saxes, 3 trumpets, 2 trombones, piano, bass and drums. As a section the reeds 
fashion their style along the Miller lines. To name one man as a soloist 
would slight the abilities of the other four. Each of the saxes has a style, 
a tone and the ability to ride that does justice to the best in the line. 

Outstanding in the brass is brother Roy Lincoln on trumpet. Friends— 
if you have never heard "I'll Be Glad When You're Dead You Dirty Dog" 
you've missed the thrill of a lifetime. Roy had a ride on this piece at Kalo 
last year that lasted four and a half minutes and that's a lotta jam on a 

Holding down the last seat on the right of the second row is a short 
drink of water named Benny. Perhaps you have laughed at the antics of 
some stage artists performing for the amusement of the dancing audience 
but when you hear this lad you're sure to agree that this one really has 
something. P. S.— He also plays a smooth trombone when he finds time to 

By now you probably have the idea that this band is strictly swing. 
True, they do and can swing. Actually I have been to a battle of swing 
between Chet and another local top-notcher when Chet played only 3 slow 
pieces in 3 hours of dancing time. That was O. K. because that is what the 
crowd had come to hear and Lincoln was well able to provide. On the other 
hand when the dancers desire soft, sweet, moon-June dance music this gen- 
tleman can provide as much as is desired in as silky a way as most of the 
so-called big-wigs we hear nightly on the radio. 

It takes a lot of work to put on a successful dance and a good band is 
essential. To date Chefs batting average here is a home run every time 
he has been called upon. Every dance at which he has played for us has 
been a grand success and here's hoping he is able to provide us with music 
more often in the future. 

Stage Whispers 

Next Thursday there will be another of the new type Wig and Buckle 
meetings. It will include a one-act play, another one of the readings which 
was so successful the last time, and there will probably be a special feature 
which will be kept secret until next week. The play to be produced at this 
meeting will be Crotty's "Escape by Moonlight," directed by Floda Trout 
If you were present at the last meeting of the Wig and Buckle, you know 
that it is an honor to be in one of these plays, so come out for the try-outs 
and make your debut on our campus. 

At the last meeting, there was a review of the new magazine "Stage," 
but as there were so few people there, I'm going to repeat some of it here 
and now. Stage is a thoroughly complete magazine for dramatically in- 
clined people, if they are acting or merely listening. This magazine includes 
reviews of all types of dramatic material - opera, ballet, plays, 
and even a resume of the now famous battle between the ASCAP and BML 
-One of the interesting features of this publication is the illustrated in- 
dex, which is a series of little cartoons to introduce each article. The items

which were solemnly radiating- ey6S '

ever, been to meet Dennis like tW~ 
She had thought she could surely k 
her distance from him and his fey^ 
tessen stand. And yet, here he

neatly cut and arranged cheese s* ° f

flag ir the Edam, an English fl a ! 
the Cheddar, a French flag i n theft 1 * 
quefort, a Belgian flag i n the Li 
burger, a Swiss flag in the Gruvet 
-a clever idaa at that, 8tle thought 
But cheese! m - 
Cheese had been the cause of th 
whole trouble. In the two years Elaine 
had been going with Dennis she had 
heard more about cheese than i n a ll 
her previous life. For Dennis owned 
a good-sized chain of delicatessen 
stores, and his cheeses were his pride 
and joy. To him they were vocation 
and avocation. The word "connoisseur" 
spoken with a nod in his direction was 
the highest praise he desired. At first 
all this talk of cheese had amused 
Elaine and even interested her. For 
she definitely loved Dennis; and al- 
though he didn't realize it, he loved 
her. Elaine knew that, and therefore 
it hurt her that he was too busy with 
his cheeses to think of proposing to 
her. Too often when they went out it 
was to a cheese exhibit, or to a lec- 
ture on cheese, or to call on some for- 
eigner who could describe cheese- 
making in the old country. Too often 
when Dennis called her it was to tell 
of a new shipment of Liptauer or 
Munster, or an unusually large order 
for Stilton or Chesire. She had put 
up with it as long as she could. Then, 
suddenly, the cheeses closed in on her 
in a vicious Blitzkreig. 

She'd never forget that evening just 
over a month ago. Right in the mid- 
dle of an explanation of a new way to 
process Camembert, she had burst out 
hysterically, "Dennis Milton, you stop 
talking about cheese this very minute. 
That's all I hear — cheese, cheese, 
cheese. I don't ever want to hear of 
the stuff again, or ever see any, or 
ever eat any. And if I don't mean 
more to you than your precious 
cheeses, you needn't come back!" 

Dennis hadn't come back, yet Elaine 
couldn't believe the cheeses had ac- 
tually won. She had spent the next 
month without cheese; but it was a 
very dull, lonely month. Coming to the 
International Food Fair today was the 
first sign of weakness in her defense- 
She knew she'd see Dennis; but she 
thought it would be from a distance 
— and without cheese! 

"Have some cheese, Elaine!" This 
time the question was gone from 
familiar voice; in its place a g er 
command. For the second time SI 
minute Elaine looked into the pair 

i a 


familiar brown eyes, now regai 
her unmistakably with love. $ ml , 
straight into them, Elaine deliberate y 
grasped the red, white, and blue 
in the mold of Cottage Cheese!

Albright And Muhlenberg 
Losses Place L. V. At Bottom 

f or e a crowd of more than 2,000 
Idered spectators, the lowly ro- 
tted Lebanon Valley quintet down- 
highly touted Gettysburg five 

^ ^37-31 score. It was one of the 
W teg ^ upsets in modern basketball 

- the Dutchmen jolted the Bullets 
JJom their lofty abode. 
j t wa s the first Lebanon Valley vic- 
ver the Bullets since the Eddie 
pfnk Memorial Gymnasium has been 
existence, and one of the few vic- 
tories scored over Gettysburg on their 
home floor. G-burg has lost only four 
home games in all since the gym has 
teen in existence, and only two league 
contests have been dropped on the 
floor. F. & M. scored a close victory 
in 1936. 

Lebanon Valley went out to grab 
an early lead in the first five minutes 
of play. The Bullets shot back to 
earn an 11-9 lead at the end of the 
grat period. The Dutchmen found th«i 
hoop in the second quarter to assume 
a lead that they relinquished at no 
time. With Mease, Schillo, Smith, and 
Kubisen tossing the sphere with un- 
erring accuracy, the Valley took the 
lead at half 23-19. 

Playing a deliberate passing, stall- 
ing game, the Blue and White retain- 
ed possession of the ball the major 
portion of the time and at the same 
time outscored their opponents 7-3. 
The final stanza brought forth an ex- 
cellent display of passing as the Val- 
ley moved the ball around for more 
than two minutes before taking a shot 
at the hoop. In the waning minutes 
the Bullets set up their long range 
apparatus in an effort to break the 
I V. C. defense. With the score 30- 
26, Mease and Schillo staged a pass- 
ing exhibition that finally resulted in 
a couple scores at Kubisen broke loose 
under the basket. Five foul tosses by 
G-burg ended their scoring as their 
total reached 31. 

Captain Mease again led the scoring 
as he tallied 14 points for the evening. 
j|e was rendered some timely aid by

th ein P ay, more firmly entrench- 
m the loop's basement. 


Staging a two-man scoring specta- 
cle, Mease and Schillo led the fad- 
ing Dutchmen to a 47-37 victory over 
the Red Devils of Dickinson College, 
in the best exhibition of ball playing 
the L. V. C. five has displayed to date. 

Employing the fast break to advan- 
tageous use, the Blue and White com- 
pletely demoralized the Dickinson 
team, which was unable to cope with 
the situation, and as a result allowed 
the Valley to pile up a nice lead, and 
then coast to victory. 

Dickinson held the upper hand in 
the first four minutes of play as they 
ran up an 8-4 advantage. Kubisen 
entered the line-up, and immediately 
the Valley forged ahead, to lead 17- 
11 at the first quarter. Mease and 
Schillo ran the score to 24-12 before 
Coach Intrieri called a halt to his first 
stringers' hostilities in the first half. 
The intermission score read 28-17 in 
the Valley's favor. 

The Devils gained a point on the 
Blue and White as they outscored 
them 10-9 in the third stanza. In the 
final quarter, the home team put on 
a real spurt that brought them tc 
within three points of the leaders. 
However, Mease and Schillo again col- 
laborated to put on a scoring show 
that had the fans gasping for breath. 
Outscoring Dickinson 10-3 in the las I 
four minutes, the Valley coasted to 
an easy ten point victory. 

For Lebanon Valley, it was Mease 
and Schillo that carried the brunt of 
the scoring racking up 29 points be- 
tween themselves, with 16 and 13 
points respectively. Smith and Ma- 
tala worked the back court like vet- 
erans, possibly being the answer to 
Coach Intrieri's prayers for a couple 
good guards, in the places of the in- 
jured Staley and Youse. 


Having completed their scholastic 
exams, the L. V. C. Flying Dutchmen 
travelled to Reading to take a 40 min- 
ute quiz in basketball. If the athletic 
result is any indication of their schol- 
astic marks, Lebanon Valley won't 
have a basketball team the second se- 
mester, because the Albright Lions 
completely annihilated the Blue and 
White by a score of 68-48. 

Next to the high score, the big fea 
ture of the ball game was the manner 
in which the officials cavorted about 
the floor. They stole the show from 
the boys who were supopsed to be 
playing by calling a total of 45 fouls. 
Each team scored eighteen points 
from the 15 foot line. 

The Lions developed a hot hand 
early in the show and failed to let 
up at any time during the contest. 
Everything they threw at the basket 
went in. If they had picked up the 
bench and had thrown it, that would 
have wormed its way into the hoop 
somehow. It was Paul Petrucka that 
led the parade, tallying 18 points. 
Strange as it seems Petrucka was u 
substitute forward that evening. Next 
in line was the famed Dick Shollen- 
berger who hung around the bucket 
long enough to rack up 15 counters. 
Someone offered him a chair under 
the basket to relieve his weariness. 

Ed Schillo was the best bet for the 
Dutchmen both offensively and defen- 
sively. His fine play brought him a 
fine round of applause when he was 
tooted off the floor with four fouls. 
Steve Kubisen added ten markers to 
the cause. Mease was held to six 
points as the Lions made sure that he 
had no opportunities to toss any shots. 



. . . whose conscientiousness and striv- 
ing for perfection has placed him 
among L. V. stars. 

Sitting here in the idle warmth, our 
thoughts drift back to the athletic 
world, and we immediately think of 
one of the grandest fellows we ever 

To say that he was outstanding, 
handsome, flashy, or any other ultra- 
descriptive term would be perjuring 
the truth. Rather, he is methodical, 
conscientious, and constantly striving 
for perfection. This constant drive 
for greater goals has brought him 
nothing but ridicule from the envious, 
but to us he presents the picture of 
a true athlete. 

He comes from the same town that 
one of his fellow athletes hails from. 
This friend has more or less obscur- 
ed the ability of our subject by his 
brilliant play. Taught the fundamen- 
tals of sport in high school by an in- 
tensive coach who stressed that phase 
of sports and as a result developed 
winning teams. 

Upon the completion of his high 
school days, he matriculated at the 
home of the Blue and White. Here his 
sound knowledge of fundamentals 
came to the foreground. He became 
an important factor in a well-drilled 
freshman basketball team. He con- 
tinued to show ability in football, 
holding down a wiry position credit- 

He became a varsity basketeer and 
was again prominent with his steady, 
perfected play. Now, he is an indis- 
pensable member of the famed soph- 
omore quintet. 

Steve Kubisen is, to our mind, a 
person to be respected and looked up 
to. Perhaps his greatest fault lies in 
his too great striving for the per- 
fect. It sometimes boomerangs to 
create a false impression and bring 
him scorn, but in the face of insur- 
mountable odds, Steve Kubisen is 
slowly achieving his aim — culture, a 
good education, and steadfast friends. 

Our hats are off to the man of the 
hour — Steve Kubisen.

iJhe Spectator 

by joe 

Well here we are back again after 
a strenuous exam schedule and what 
is more gratifying than to know that 
we're allowed to return to L. V. C. 
And so it is with this cheerful mood 
that we take time to pen the sports 
happenings of the Blue and White 

Our Flying Dutchmen have won 
two and lost two contests during our 
period of inactivity. The sweetest vic- 
tory was the six point affair over G- 
burg on the Bullets battlefield. It 
was the second time in league history 
that anybody ever clipped the Bul- 
lets in their new Eddie Plank Gym- 

Muhlenberg completely dominated 
the play at Allentown giving the Blue 
and White little opportunity to break 
loose. Albright also treated the 
Dutchmen with total disrespect as the 
Lions rang up 68 points for a new 

At Carlisle it was a pleasure to 
watch the Valley break fast to make 
the Red Devils think that maybe they 
went to the wrong place anyhow. 

The forward combination of Mease 
and Schillo has caused many head- 
aches among their opponents. Smith 
who dropped into the lineup to take 
up guard duties has certainly proved 
to be a big help. 

Continuing the basketball line, 
Coach Jerry Frock's yearlings are 
again taking it on the chin. From 
the stands it looks as though there 
is too much internal friction. That's 
just the way it appears, of course. 

In the dorm the Seniors went to 
town in their first two games, but 
met their downfall at the hands of 
the Frosh. Of course, they were with- 
out the services of one "Porky" Grow, 
but still — 

While in the Day Student League, 
the Juniors are still on top although 
they're getting tougher competition, 
or else they are getting cocky. 

If any on the campus are interested 
in fencing, drop into the gym on Sat- 
urday at about two o'clock. Our sab- 
ermen and foilers will meet the F. & 
M. lads. It won't do any harm to 
drop in and show your interest in this 
new sport. 

And finally, do you think we can 
arouse a little more school spirit?

L. V. Frosh Quintet 
On Losing Spree 

Dickinson Frosh De- 
feated, 44-20 

The Blue and White lost the fourth 
game of the season to the Muhlenberg 
Frosh 46-37 when the Frockmen wilted 
in the fourth period after assuming 
a 30-28 lead at the three-quarter point 
by a third quarter rally. The victors 
had outscored the Valley in the first 
two periods but gave way before the 
assault of the Valley yearlings. The 
Muhlenberg outfit came to life in the 
final canto to win 46-37. Light copped 
high scoring laurels for the evening 
with 12 counters. Lentz, Relien, and 
Stone each sank 11 points to lead the 
way to victory for the Allentown ag- 

Jerry Frock's charges did an ab- 
rupt about face in their next contest 
by sinking the Dickinson Frosh 44-20. 
The Valley lads outclassed the heme 
team in every way from the initial 
whistle. Half-score stood at 18-11 in 
favor of L. V. C. Both teams battled 
away in the third quarter as the 
Dutchman led 28-19 going into the 
last period. The Valley completely 
dominated the play in this chukker 
by outscoring the Dickinson five 15-1. 
C. Miller led the Blue and White with 
11 points and was ably assisted by 
Light and Dorazio with 9 points each. 
Heckel tallied 9 counters to hold up 
the cause for the losers. 

The L. V. Frosh suffered a defeat 
in their next game that was sand- 
wiched between semester exams when 
the highly regarded Gettysburg Fresh- 
men dumped Coach Frock's proteges 
39-28. The Bullets went to work in 
the first period by outscoring the 
L. V. Frosh 8-4. Half-time score read 
17-12 with the home team in the lead. 
Gettysburg maintained the pace begun 
in the first half and completely hand- 
cuffed the Frockmen in the last two 
periods. Weeliner took high scoring 
honors with 13 points while Dorazio 
led the losing cause with 7 points. 

The Blue and White dropped its 
next game to the Albright Frosh in 
a rather lethargic game. The final 
score read 23-15. Both teams started 
slowly and showed little form as the 
game progressed. The Frockmen were 
able to collect a grand total of 3 field 
goals, gaining the remainder of their 
points from the charity stripe. We 
cannot say, however, that the Frosh 
failed to try, as shot after shot was 
thrown at the hoop without success. 
Lanky "Cardinal" Newman led his 
mates in the game with six points. 
The home team split up its points be- 
tween a half-dozen players. 

The Hershey Industrial School a-

Lynches Enjoy 
Trip To West 

(Continued from Page 1) 
made by Bishop Ira E. Warner and 
Secretary Deever, I preached in the 
First United Brethren Church, Los 
Angeles, and the Bell Memorial Uni- 
ted Brethren Church, near Puente." 

Monday and Tuesday were spent 
making a few visits to old time, 
friends, and pastors now located in 
California. Of these whom Dr. and 
Mrs. Lynch visited, Mrs. D. D. De- 
Long is the most closely related to 
Lebanon Valley College. Her hus- 
band was president of Lebanon Val- 
ley College from 1876 to 1887. Dr. 
Lynch's description of an evening in 
the home of Bishop and Mrs. Ira D. 
Warner is must appealing. It follows : 
"The evening was spent in enjoy- 
ing what is rapidly becoming a lost 
art, namely, the fine art of wholesome 
conversation. From lighter themes 
characterized by good humor, the 
group entered into rather serious dis- 
cussion of the present world crisis, 
and we considered the relation of the 
Church and of individual Christians 
to the present international anarchy 
in general and to our national-defense 
program in particular. It was agreed 
that the Church possesses the means 
to remedy many of the disorders as- 
sociated with the depravity of man- 
kind; but what we lack is the spirit- 
ual intelligence to apply the Christian 
remedy to the present situation. As 
this most delightful visit drew to- 
ward a close, Bishop Warner led his 
guests in a period of heavenly inter 
cession, in which each member of the 
company and his particular work 
were presented at the Throne of Grace 
with a fervency of petition that made 
us all sensitive to the Divine pres- 

As for the meetings in Pasadena, 
they were interesting and by no 
means without consideration for the 
students enrolled in America's numer- 
ous colleges and universities. Again 
Dr. Lynch sets forth in his own words 
the accomplishments of the Confer- 

"The program of the Thirtieth 
Annual Meeting of the Council of 
Church Boards of Education included 
a symposium based on the address 
prepared by President A. R. Keppel 
and read by President Ellis of Juni- 
ata College because of the former's 
inability to be present. His subject 
was, The Church and American Edu- 
cation. Two symposia followed: the 
first symposium was from the view- 
point of the Church Boards of Edu- 
cation; the second was from the an- 
gle of church workers with students. 
The trend of the discussions was pro- 
nouncedly in the direction of the im- 
mediate necessity of revitalizing the 
religious life of the campus of the 
Church-related colleges. There has 
been a manifest trend toward a ster- 
ile secularism, and it is imperative 
that spiritual values be rediscovered 
and utilized. 

"The theme of the Sixth Annual 
Meeting of the National Conference 
of Church-Related Colleges was, A 
More Effective Christian Emphasis 
on the Campus. Earl E. Harper, Di- 
rector of the School of Fine Arts, 
in the University of Iowa, addressed 
the meeting on The Fine Arts and Re- 
ligion, indicating how the beautiful 
may mediate spiritual values. As Col- 
lege Presidents See It was the topic 
of the symposium in which three col- 
lege presidents participated. The view- 
points of the students were then pre- 
sented by three college men who were 
painfully caustic in their severe criti- 
cisms of the failure of the Church- 
related college to live up to its pro- 
fessed ideals. One student said that 
he had failed to discover many genu- 
ine professors on the faculty of the 
college in which he was enrolled. (He 
stated that the greatest influence for 
good on the campus is the gentleman 
college professor who is a genuine 

Christian.) A fraternal rather than 
a paternal attitude on the part of 
dormitory proctors was also stressed. 

"The mass meeting in the evening 
included an address by Dr. Ben M. 
Cherrington, the Director of the 
Foundation for the Advancement of 
the Social Sciences, in the University 
of Denver and adviser to the Division 
of Cultural Relations, Department of 
State, Washington. President Robert 
A. Millikan, of the California Insti- 
tute of Technology, delivered the sec- 
ond message. It is interesting to note 
that when a group of college presi- 
dents visited the Institute later in 
the week, Dr. Millikan indicated that 
forty per cent of the work of his stu- 
dents is in the humanities. A liberal 
arts foundation for personal and so- 
cial adequacy is recognized in this 
highly specialized institution. 

"The Association of American Col- 
leges likewise met in the Hotel Hunt- 
ingdon, Pasadena, January 9-11. Lib- 
eral Education and Democracy was 
the general theme of the meetings. 
Three addresses of special import- 
ance were delivered by Dr. Reinhold 
Schairer, Head of the Department of 
International Studies and Relations, 
University of London, Institute of 
Education, who spoke on Reconstruc- 
tion After Hitler; Count Carlo Sfor- 
za, formerly Italian Minister of For- 
eign Affairs; and Paul Van Zeeland, 
former Prime Minister of Belgium. 
Henry Luce, Editor of Time, also de- 
livered an outstanding message at this 
Thursday evening meeting in the Pas- 
adena Auditorium. Earlier in the ev- 
ening Mrs. Lynch and I were enter- 
tained in the Venice home of Mr. and 
Mrs. Seymour Bettinger; the latter 
is a member of the Conservatory Fac- 
ulty of Lebanon Valley College, now 
taking a year's leave of absence for 
advanced study and special teach- 

Of particular interest to the edu- 
cators was their visit to the Metro- 
Goldwyn-Mayer Studios. An elaborate 
program was arranged by Mr. Mayer. 
Among the participants were Judy 
Garland and Nelson Eddy. Also pres- 
ent was Mickey Rooney who is, in- 
cidentally, a great favorite of Mrs. 
Lynch. The guests of Metro-Goldwyn- 
Mayer had an opportunity to visit the 
sets of Mickey's new picture, Andy 
Hardy's Secretary. "It was inter- 
esting and amusing," said Dr. Lynch, 
"to see these college presidents run 
for the autographs of their favorite 
stars." Dr. Lynch admitted that he 
did not get any autographs, but he 
modestly retold the amusing incidents 
produced by Edgar Bergen and Char- 
lie (Stoogent) McCarthy. Student 
McCarthy informed the college presi- 
dents that "college education is 
something every college graduate 
should have." Herr Charlie also in- 
dicated his knowledge of the sciences 
when he informed his proctor, Edgar 
Bergen, that he kept his mortar board 
on his head by means of a vacuum. 
An address by Mr. Mayer and a 
"sumptuous luncheon." Said Dr. 
Lynch, "We left the studios much 
impressed with the potentialities of 
this major industry for good and evil 

Before considering Dr. Lynch's re- 
turn, it might be well to state that 
he was Chairman of the Committee 
on Budget and Audit for the National 
Council of Church Boards. 

On their homeward journey, Dr. 
and Mrs. Lynch visited Juarez, Mexi- 
co; the Fort Bliss Cavalry Post; El 
Paso, Texas (here they were the hous« 
guests of Mr. W. E. Herr, Secretary 
of the El Paso Army Y. M. C. A. and 
an Alumnus of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege, class of 1900) ; New Orleans 
(Here they witnessed the testing of 
a new torpedo boat and saw Bombers 
being prepared for shipment to Eng- 
land) ; Atlanta; Stone Mountain; and 
the Nation's Capitol. They arrived 
home on Saturday, January 18, fa- 
tigued but inspired.

Players and officials are selected be- 
cause of their competence, — the for- 
mer, after trial by the coaches; the 
latter, after active and wide experi- 
ence. As sportsmen, both players and 
officials want the game played under 
conditions that will be fair to both 
sides, the visiting team as well as the 
home team. 

The visitors are Muhlenberg Col- 
lege's guests while they are here. We 
hope our team will play well enough 
to win; our guests hope they will 
play well enough to defeat us. Both 
teams understand and welcome this 
attitude. The visitors are not hostile 
enemies invading our territory; we 
look upon them as friendly competi- 
tors and we want them to play the 
best game of which they are capable. 
If this should be good enough to win, 
well and good. Under these circum- 
stances, if we are victorious, then we 
know we deserve the decision and are 
unquestionably entitled to it. 

Muhlenberg appreciates the interest 
of an increasingly large number of 
friends who are supporting our teams 
and we hope that this interest will 
grow with the years. We feel certain 
that it will if these supporters join 
with us in being real hosts to our 
friends who are our rivals in 
athletics. However, we want them 
treated as real friends whose skillful 
efforts deserve applause just as good 
play on the part of our own team does. 
Furthermore the officials have been 
selected because of their reputation 
for fairness and competence. Booing, 
hissing, and other forms of discourt- 
esy hurt our team, the College, and 
the community. 

We request that all spectators, 
whether connected with the College or 
not, join with us as we discharge our 
hospitality to our guests. You will 
see a better game if you will do this, 
and you will enjoy it more than you 
could if unsportsmanlike conduct, on 
the part of either players or specta- 
tors, should spoil what both competing 
institutions want to be a fair trial 
of skill between friendly rivals.

of the noticeable characteristics of his

Dr. Lynch Attends 
Washington Meeting 

Education and Defense is Theme 

Last Thursday, February 6, The 
National Conference of Defense Com- 
mittees of colleges and universities 
met at the Mayflower Hotel in Wash- 
ington, D. C. At the meeting of Sec- 
tion IV, which includes private col- 
leges with enrollments under 600, 
President H. H. Reynolds of Hendrix 
College took the chair. He appointed 
President Clyde A. Lynch of Lebanon 
Valley College to act as secretary of 
the meeting and to prepare an ab- 
stract of the sectional proceedings. 
Fifty-three colleges and universities 
were represented in this section. 

The Chairman opened the discussion 
with remarks concerning the func- 
tions of private colleges, or as he pre- 
fered to describe these institutions as 
"non-governmental colleges." In his 
address he made use of the term 
"Soldiers of Civilization," a title 
which he conferred upon students of 
the liberal art colleges who are pre- 
paring for all the professions. 

There was a ready response to the 
questions proposed by the Chairman, 
concerning what is being done by the 
smaller liberal arts colleges to sup- 
port our national defense program. 
Among the replies were statements 
to the effect that new courses had 
been added to the curriculum to fam- 
iliarize the student with various as- 
pects of Latin-American culture; the 
increasing emphasis on acquainting 
the student more thoroughly with the 
development of the ideals and prac- 
tices of our American way of life; 
facilities have been offered to the gov- 
ernment for research in defense meas- 
ured ; the introduction of courses deal- 
ing with the general and specific 
problems of Europe; an intensified 
health and recreational program in- 
cluding additional physical education 
equipment to bring about a higher 
degree of health among students and 
in the community; and the addition 
to the curriculum of social sciences

Hold tight! Hold tight! 
Come on team, fight! fight! 

Here is the five dollar prize win- 
ning yell as written by Gene Cohen 
and Bud Rubin, two freshmen day 
students from Harrisburg. From the

In second place is the cheer which 
has been original with the band. Most 
of the students are familiar with it, 
but the entire cheering section has 
never rendered it. The cheer follows:

Give us a good substantial yell;

L Club 

It offtimes behooves us to see the 
ends to which some organization on 
the campus are forced to go in order 
to reward its members for services 
rendered. Attention was brought to 
the student body this week of the lack 
of sufficient funds to purchase sweat- 
ers for members of the "L" Club who 
have gained varsity recognition in 
one of the major sports on the athlet- 
ics at Lebanon Valley College. 

It seems from all appearances that 
the "L" Club was denied the right this 
year to secure money for purchase of 
sweaters by the means usually adopted 
in the past — the rather inoffensive 
practice of "selling chapel seats" to 
the new students. This sale of chapel 
seats was and always has been on an 
organized basis and not a free lance 
movement as employed by some stu- 
dent in renting or selling certain 
furniture and fixtures in his dormi 
tory room to the uninitiated freshman 
by claiming ownership from the previ 
ous term. 

It is not thought good policy to 
compare the practice employed on our 
own campus to those of this or that 
institution in such matters. But we 
must realize that the greater number 
of colleges provide these rewards to 
athletes from a separate fund of some 
sort. The lettermen at L. V. C. were 
advised to provide money for this pur- 
pose by holding some affairs through- 
out the year instead of arbitrarily 
assessing members of the Freshmen 

Entering into the spirit of this sug- 
gestion the President of the "L" Club 
and his associates have laid plans for 
a Sports Show to be held in the near 
future. We cannot but admire the 
willingness of these athletes in sup- 
porting this program. But at the same 
time we cannot but deplore the nec- 
essity for such effort when these in- 
dividuals have already more than 
earned the rewards which they so 
justly deserve.

by Maurie Erdman 

Gaining recognition for himself re- 
cently is a young man who has been 
more criticized than any other two 
band leaders in past months. Artie 
Shaw started off a number of years 
ago with a band that was as close to 
the old Benny G. as could be hoped 
for. As styles changed so changed our 
young leader until he leads what is 
called by writers over the country the 
band of tomorrow. 

A few months ago his 22 piece band 
was a joke. Today he has amazed the 
music public by a band composed of 
3 trombones, 3 trumpets, 4 rhythm, 6 
strings and 5 reeds. The 22nd man is 
Shaw himself playing the nation's 
greatest clarinet. Artie managed to 
combine the great swing band fea- 
tures of his pre-nervous breakdown 
period with the Whiteman-featured 
strings to produce a great band rank- 
ing among the never-to-be-forgotten 
music groups. 

One of the star soloists of the band 
is drummer Nick Fatool, perhaps not 
the greatest in the country, but cer- 
tainly a runner-up to the top three. 
As a matter of fact, if you listen to 
one of Shaw's recent releases youM 
begin to believe he comes out third. 

The record? It's the Shaw com- 
posed, Shaw arranged "Concerto For 
Clarinet" Parts I and II, released on 
Victor and taken from the Paramount 
Film, "Second Chorus." Nick has a 
break on the tom-toms that gives Kru- 
pa's work on "Sing, Sing, Sing" a 
run for its money. Lasting one min- 
ute and fifty-two seconds it is accom- 
panied by some excellent clarinet 
work that out-does Goodman's recent 

"And where did all this begin?" 
you ask. Remember "Frenesi"? Shaw 
did the first popular recording of that 
last year. More recently his "Star- 
dust" competed with the same piece 
reissued with a new arrangement by 
T. D. His "Old, Old Castle In Scot- 
land" was also headed for the tops 
before ASCAP. These are but a few 
of the records that started it all. 

Before closing you might gallop 
down to the P-way and have a look at 
the Gramercy Five recording we 
warned you about in this column on 
October 24, 1940. It's a mighty fina 
piece of work and it's only one rea- 
son why we finally agree that this 
gang is headed for the bright lights, 
even brighter than they are at pres- 

Stage Whispers 

With the momentary lull in dra- 
matics on our campus, we must turn 
our keyholes elsewhere if we are to 
find anything of interest to our local 
Thesbians. And here it is. — Next year 
when Professor Miller asks for a de- 
finition of the Free Companies, Ir- 
will have to specify which ones he 
wants described. — For history has re- 
peated itself to such an extent that 
once again they have organized, but 
this time it is here in our own coun- 
try and for a very real purpose. The 
FREE COMPANY is a group of lead- 
ing American actors and playwrights 
who have banded themselves together 
for the purpose of combatting foreign 
propaganda in America. As a medi- 
um for making public their work, they 
will use the radio. Each week they 
will present a free contribution by a 
different member. The names of thn 
men who are at present in this or- 
ganization read like a page from 
"Who's Who in America." Among 
them are: National Chairman James 
Boyd, author of "Drums"; Robert 
Sherwood, author of the modern war 
play, "There Shall Be No Night"; 
Burgess Meredith, the actor who 
scored so definitely in "Of Mice and 
Men"; and W. B. Lewis, the vice- 
president of the Columbia Broadcast- 
ing System. This is just the guiding 
committee. Additional members in- 
clude: Marc Connelly of "Green Pas- 
tures" fame; William Saroyan who 
wrote that very recent and very suc- 
cessful book, "My Name Is Aram"; 
Maxwell Anderson, author of the fa- 
mous play, "Winterset"; Orson 
Welles, "the man from Mars"; Ste- 
phen Vincent Benet whose latest work 
is "Key Largo," a play about the 
Spanish civil war; Archibald Mac- 
Leish whose radio play, "Air Raids," 
is to be given here on campus soon; 
Sherwood Anderson; Paul Germ; and 
George M. Cohan who is writing plays 
now. These plays are not to be simply 
didactic theses, but are going to be 
really dramatic works which will be 
interesting to all. And the best thing 
is that you don't even have to leave 
your homes to hear them. 

The Wig and Buckle tonight has 
had some additions to its program. 
Jane Baker and Dorothy Jean Light 
are going to give a scene from "The 
Old Maid"; Robert Mandle is going 
to give a monologue from "Death 
Takes a Holiday"; and Dick Zent- 
Myer is also going to give a mono- 
logue although the name of it has not 
been decided upon.

His sense of direction was

^°. oU gh the hoop for what proved to 
1 t ^ e winning points of the ball 
^ giving Muhlenberg a close 36- 
35 victory over our hard fighting 
Du tchmen. 

jt was just 35 seconds after Cap- 
tain R a lP n Mease had tossed a one- 
zander to give Lebanon Valley a 35- 
34 lead over the Mules, who had been 

front all evening, that Schneider 
threw up his game winning toss, to 
climax a contest that had all the ear- 
marks of a Harold M. Sherman novel, 
in which the hero flips in a goal in 
^ waning minutes of the game to 
snatch victory from defeat. 

The game was a hair raiser from 
the beginning to end, keeping the 
handful of customers on their toes 
a ll the time. The fray started out 
with the score tied four times in the 
first quarter, as both teams fought 
bitterly to go ahead. Finally the Mules 
forged ahead to hold a 13-10 lead at 
the end of the first stanza. 

In the second period, Busby was 
substituted for the high scoring 
Schneider, who chanced to have com- 
mitted three fouls to that time. It 
was Busby who sparked the Mules, to 

gain a seven point advantage to lead, 
19-12. At that point Ed Schillo start- 
ed on a spree oi his own, to cut down 
the visitors' lead to 22-20 at half time. 

The Allentown lads promptly came 
out for the second half to start on a 
scoring splurge. The Dutchmen bat- 
tled desperately to hang on, and ro 
prevent a runaway by the Mule. On 
three occasions they came to within 
two points of the leaders. At the 
three quarter mark the Red and Sil- 
ver clad lads moved out on a 32-26 

Muhlenberg moved out to a 34-28 
advantage early in the final chapter. 
The fans began to think that the 
Dutchmen were finished for the even- 
ing, but Coach Intrieri's boys thought 
dirferently, as they fought to cut down 
the score. With two minutes to play 
the Blue and White was trailing, 

At this point Captain Mease stepped 
into the light, to completely change 
the color of the picture. He first 
dropped a foul shot to cut down the 
lead. Shortly after, while in the act 
of shooting, he was fouled again. He 
tallied the singletons to come within 
one point of tying the score. 

With the Dutchmen trailing 34-33, 
with one minute and five seconds of 
play remaining, Mease intercepted a 
Muhlenberg pass which he converted 
into a score to put the home team

The subject of this week's dissertation is perhaps not the one of greatest 
interest in the sports world to the faithful followers of this coiumn but we 
nave found it to be the one of greatest interest to those who participate m 
sports at L. V. C. , , , _ u __M,^ml 

The ultimate objective of the topic of this article, the purchase ot 
sweaters for athletes who have been accredited as lettermen at Lebanon 
Valley, is not one of long standing in the sense of time alone, In fact this 
problem has never arisen on the campus of the Dutchmen within the recol- 
lection of this writer. It is a problem that has arisen only in the last few 
months. But it has been bothering some individuals on the campus in such 
a manner as to almost cause mental instability. Chief among these per- 
sons is one Frankie Kuhn, president of the "L" Club. President Kuhn waa 
informed early last fall that sale of chapel seats, a practice commonly fol- 
lowed by the "L" Club to secure funds to purchase sweaters, to freshmen 
an d to other new students would not be tolerated. The reasons for such 
a denial are not important enough to consider mentioning here. Since 
tfl at time Frankie and several other upperclassmen have been wondering 
ow to raise money to remedy the situation that developed as a result of 
tlu s notification. 

-A- plan was decided upon that called for offering some sort of enter- 
mment for the student body in order to strengthen the finances of the 
. UD - Upon further consideration it was found that only one of the many 
* ctors hindering completion of plans was the matter of a date to stage the 
air - Kuhn and his men summarily postponed actual realization of their 
^ to a later date. 

Spot rly this week Kuhn announced that tne " L " Club wil1 P resent a 
oth Show includin g boxing, wrestling, and fencing matches and several 
, s er feature attractions, to be held on Friday, February 21. At present it 
g J| ot certain whether this carnival of sports will be held in the Alumni

ahead for the first time the whole 
evening, 35-34. 

The Blue and White gained posses- 
sion of the ball in back court when a 
Muhlenberg pass was intercepted. 
Mease called time out to set up an 
out of bounds play in the hopes of 
scoring to boost the lead. The strategy 
failed when the shot was missed, and 
the Mules gained possession of the 
ball. Mixing passes with fakes, the 
ball was worked near the basket at 
which point Schneider dumped in the 
game-winning goal. For the remain- 
ing 35 seconds the vistiors gained pos- 
session of the ball and held on to it. 
A jump-up at mid-court marked the 
end of the contest. 

Schneider, incidentally, is runner- 
up to Mease in scoring in the league, 
but the Valley captain maintained his 
advantage by tallying 13 points. Right 
behind Mease was Schillo with 12 
points, to hold the number three spot 
in the scoring race. 

[ Shorts S^euieiv 

Resuming our interrupted review 
of the sports activities we now come 
to the spring athletics. A glance at 
the records shows that the wearers 
of the Blue and White did not fare 
so well. In baseball the tossers were 
victorious in three contests out of nine 
played. Tennis enthusiasts were un- 
able to overcome the racket wielding 
of their opponents, and as a result 
were defeated on seven occasions, win- 
ning only one match. 

The Dutchmen got off to a slow 
start, being held up by rain on three 
scheduled trips. With the clearing of 
the skies, came a team from Maryland. 
The lads were quite efficient ball play- 
ers and immediately proceeded to 
pound out an 8-4 victory at the ex- 
pense of big George Katchmer. Jour- 
neying to Ursinus the boys were again 
treated with disrespect as hurler Kuhn 
was bested by a 10-8 decision. Faulty 
outfielding led to the downfall of the 
Blue and White. 

On May Day, with all the prospec- 
tive students gazing in awe at a col- 
lege contest, Western Maryland com- 
pletely annihilated the Valley by a 
15-2 score. Weiler starting his first 
game as a hurler was driven from 
the mound as he failed to survive the 
first frame. Kuhn relieved but the 
battle was lost. However the victory 
starved Dutchmen rebounded to take 
the count of Loyola, 6-5. It was Frank 
Kuhn that led the Valley to its first 
victory, with superb pitching and 
timely hitting. 

Three L. V. pitchers issued a total 
of sixteen walks as the "University of 
Delaware outscored the Blue and 
White 12-11, although the Valley out- 
hit the visitors 14-11. An eighth inning 
uprising by Bucknell spelled defeat 
for Frank Kuhn as the Bisons squeez- 
ed out a 4-1 victory. Drexel fell under 
the spell of Johnny Walters who led 
the Dutchmen to their second win of 
the season by a 12-4 score. 

Kuhn again proved to be the master, 
as he shouldered his musket and in- 
timidated the Juniata Indians suffi- 
ciently to eke out a 6-5 victory. Muh- 
lenberg journeyed to Annville, and 
immediately proceeded to take ad- 
vantage of Freshman Walters' eccen- 
tricity to talk him into a 4-3 loss. A 
circuit clout in the final frame by a 
pinch-hitter proved to be the deciding 

In the tennis world, the high hopes 
of the Valley squad were rudely shat- 
tered when the top-ranking men failed 
to develop as expected. F. and M. took 
the Dutchmen's measure 7-2. West 
Chester repeated the F. and M. score, 
but the Valley bounded back to take 
an 8-1 win over the Moravian Grey- 
hounds. Drew took a 6-3 match from 
Lebanon Valley, and immediatly after 
that Upsala eked out a 5-4 win. Muh- 
lenberg completely shellacked the Val- 
ley 9-0. F. and M. repeated its 7-2 

score and in the season's finale Buck- 
nell took the match 6-1. 

Danny Seiverling was the best bet 
for the Blue and White, while Stewie 
Shapiro encountered some difficulty 
in the number one spot. 

The football season proved to be 
the worst in years, winning only three 
contests and losing five. Franklin and 
Marshall with its best team in years 
administered a 21-0 defeat to the Val- 
ley. The gridders bounded back to take 
the count of the Aggies from Arkan- 
sas A. and M., 28-6, in the first night 
encounter of the season. Moravian 
tore into the Dutchmen to avenge all 
preceding losses, by downing the Blue 
and White 19-3. P. M. C. provided 
the thrill of the season when they 
eased out a 19-16 win over the home 
team, before a meager home-coming 
crowd. A touchdown pass in the last 
two minutes spelled the downfall of 
L. V. C. The score is still being dis- 

puted, because pictures have shown 
that the pass receiver was out-of- 

Playing in a sea of mud in the wilds 
of Maryland, Lebanon Valley stalled 
out a 6-0 win over a hapless Blue 
Ridge team. Upsala was next to feel 
the power of the Dutchmen, as the 
Valley, under the supervision of 
Kuhn, pounded out a 27-14 victory. 
In the traditional Lebanon Valley 
game with Albright, the Blue and 
White had high hopes but they were 
of no avail as the Lions roared to a 
3-0 victory. Completely let down the 
Valley suffered another stunning 
blow, when the University of Dela- 
ware won a 16-0 contest. 

Outstanding in their play even with 
a crippled and small squad, were Ed 
Schillo, Frank Kuhn, Captain Bos- 
nyak, Bruno Grabusky, Ted Ciamillo, 
Hank Scmalzer, Harry Matala and 
Alex Rakow.

Letter to the Editor 

Hail to the powers that be: 

It is with great fear and trepida- 
tion that I broach a subject that is a 
thorn in the flesh of us all; particu- 
larly do I quake when I realize that 
I represent a very small minority. 
Perhaps I alone am the minority. But 
so strongly do I feel on this subject 
that I feel called upon to bring this 
message to you, my harrassed and 
overly-burdened fellowmen. 

Our school calendar is woefully 
crowded. Every night the gym is in 
use, and Engle Hall is the scene of 
some campus activity. Many complain 
of the multitudinous meetings and be- 
wail the too frequent conflicts. But 
I, daring soul that I am, say, "Well 
and good"! After all, there are only 
seven days to the week, and twenty- 
four hours to the day, even at Leb- 
anon Valley. If all these extra-cur- 
riculars are a vital and worthy part 
of college life, and I assume that there 
is a group to defend each and every 
one of them, then several of them 
must occur in the same evening. It 
is sheer selfishness for one organiza- 
tion to claim a monopoly on even one 
evening, not to mention a whole series 
of evenings. 

My feelings on this subject reached 
the present boiling point when I heard 
of the Rec Hour-Student Recital sit- 
uation. Fourteen Rec Hours have been 
scheduled for this semester. Many of 
us (mainly the lowbrows, I admit) 
look forward to our little bi-weekly 
flings. To take them away from us 
would be like taking candy from a 
baby. Then, oh! unhappy day, eight 
student recitals are scheduled for the 
same dates as those of Rec Hour ! Did 
I hear a faint voice mention the fact 
that Rec Hour lasts only to seven- 
thirty and the recitals don't begin un- 
til eight? Well, it seems that 
those who organize recitals declare 
that the two activities cannot occur 
on the same night. I maintain that 
they can without causing even a minor 
upheaval. Conserve students are re- 
quired to attend the student recitals — 
they will be there; never fear. Rec 
Hour attendance will not be affected 
appreciably. For the few (and they 
are mighty few) who are interested 
in both, there remains the simple 
choice of cutting the light music and 
absorbing the heavy, or arranging 
their work so as to attend both. 

And this matter of work brings to 
mind the last point which must be 
lingering in the mind of my worthy 
opposition. On Tuesday night the fol- 
lowing activities were scheduled: 
Quittie pictures, fencing, two basket- 
ball games, Rec Hour, German Club, 
and Y. W. C. A. meeting. Did those 
who are cutting our Rec Hours from 
fourteen to six complain? Nary a 
word. Off hand, I can name one boy 
who attended three of the activities 
scheduled and then caught the late 
movie at the Astor. (P. S. He main- 
tains a high B average.) 

Our lively extra-curricular pro- 
gram can and should continue. The 
students want Rec Hour to take its 
place among them. But Rec Hour and 
other activities will be forced out of 
existence if one-half of the school 
continues to claim and enforce prior- 
ity rights over the time of the whole 
student body. For the benefit of the 
whole they should give that coopera- 
tion and understanding they demand 
from others.

Money Helps In 
purchase of Mobile 
Kitchen, Yarn 

The Y. W. C A. cabinet has pledged 
tself to help in the local campaign 
J or British War Relief by contribu- 
ting to a sum of money to the British 
far Relief Society, Incorporated. The 
ten dollars which is given in behalf of 
a ll women members of the Y. W. will 
help in obtaining a mobile kitchen 
for use in bombed areas as well as 
entitle any L. V. girl to obtain yarn 
fcr knitting garments to be sent to 

A mobile kitchen was exhibited in 
Annville during the last weekend. It 
has built-in equipment to cook hot 
foods on the field of emergency and 
insulated compartments to keep stew, 
soup and coffee hot for hours' so that 
200 people may be fed at a time. A 
single unit costs $1,750. Such kitchens 
are what the English need and desire 
most from the civilian population. 

The yarn for knitting will be avail- 
able to all women students who wish 
to help in the British Relief project. 
It may be obtained any Wednesday 
from one to five at the basement of 
the College Church. Instructions will 
be given when the yarn is obtained. 

Organization of this local unit will 
give Lebanon Valley an opportunity 
to actually aid in a definite and mater- 
>al way where heretofore the means 
°f giving help were obscure. Pins will 
be sold, individual memberships may 
be purchased, and the knitting may be 
done. The appeal is made directly and 
m ay be answered directly by those 
w ho desire to cooperate.

Sports Show 
To Be Staged 
In Engle Hall 

L Club Carnival To 
Include Boxing, 
Wrestling, Fencing 

In accordance with previously an- 
nounced plans the "L" Club will stage 
a Sports Show in Engle Hall on Fri- 
day evening commencing at 8:00 P. 
M. The carnival of sports will in- 
clude boxing, wrestling, and fencing 
Bob Hackman will act as master of 
ceremonies and "Willie" Green, phy- 
sical instructor of the State Police 
Barracks at Hershey, will be the third 
man in the ring. 

The feature bout of the evening 
will find "Teddy" Ciamillo, polished 
Golden Gloves entrant in the past 
several seasons, meeting Felix Wag- 
ner, Harrisburg Golden Gloves Champ 
in 1939 and 1941. Wagner recently 
received the plaudits of a large sports 
crowd in New York City for his splen- 
did boxing skill and aggressiveness. 
This bout will undoubtedly top the 
large card offered by the "L" Club. 
Ciamillo is highly respected in local 
boxing circles for his punching pow- 
er and clever bcxinp, strategy. 

"Freddie" Bosnyak and "Barney" 
Bentzel will meet in a three round go 
as part of the college talent included 
on the program. Neither of the two 
boys have ever entered the ring be- 
fore. In another tyro bout in the 
middleweight division "Johnny" Hall 
and Ralph Shay will take the ring to 
slug it out. Both these lads lack ex- 
perience in the fight game, but are 
willing to don the gloves. Both these 
bouts will be of particular interest 
to campus sports followers. 

Two other boxing attractions have 
been added to the list to supplement 
those mentioned above. Four talented 
boxers from off the campus have been 
secured to add color to the show. 

"Hank" Schmalzer and "Johnny" 
Eminhizer have agreed to meet in the 
grunt and groan portion of the pro- 
gram. "Punchy John" will be giving 
away a large weight advantage to 
Schmaltzer, but has had two years' 
experience in wrestling in high school 
days. Another wrestling match will 
be offered, but the names of the con-

John Dressier was selected as the 
Anniversary President of the Philo-

ing held on Tuesday, February 18. The 
society's seventy-fourth anniversary 
celebration will be on May 10. Robert 
Mandle will serve as executive chair- 
man for the dance and play. 

The new president, Dressier, has 
been prominent for his service as 
president of the Men's Senate, as 
business manager of the Quittie, and 
as business manager of La Vie. In 
addition to being treasurer of the 
Philo's funds in his junior year he 
has worked in the Wig and Buckle 
Club. Outstanding among his other 
interests' is the application of his tal- 
ents in art.

Mark National 
Brotherhood Week 

Lebanon Valley is planning to ob- 
serve National Brotherhood Week by 
having two representatives of differ- 
ent faiths speak to the students and 
faculty in slightly extended chapel 
periods on separate days. The week 
beginning on Washington's Birthday, 
February 22, and continuing to Feb- 
ruary 28, has been set aside in Amer- 
ica as National Brotherhood Week, 
an observance being sponsored by the 
National Conference of Christians and 

The first of the speakers will be 
Reverend Lawrence F. Schott, of Car- 
lisle, Pennsylvania. He will speak next 
Tuesday, February 25, on the subject, 
"Christian Foundation for Peace and 
what we can do about it." Reverend 
Schott has been interested in Youth 
Work since his Ordination. In the 
Diocese at Harrisburg he acts as the 
"Harrisburg Diocesan Chaplain of 
Boy Scouts" and also "Moderator of 
Catholic Student Centers." He pub- 
lishes a weekly Students' Religious 
Bulletin for the benefit of each of 
these Catholic students. Reverend 
Schott has also published a pamphlec 
entitled Religion Goes to College. 

On Wednesday, February 26, the 
chapel speaker will be Rabbi Philip 
D. Bookstaber, of Temple Ohev Sho- 
lom, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. His 
topic will be "Religion's Stake in De- 
mocracy." Rabbi Bookstaber entered

Practice Teachers 
Work In Hershey 

Six practice teachers are fulfilling 
their required work at Hershey High 
School under Dr. Clyde Stine's super- 
vision during this semester. In order 
to give more time to individuals this 
new plan is being tried. 

The group composed of Mary Ellen 
Holman, Ferne Poet, Betty Ann Ruth- 
erford, George Grow, Richard Bell, 
and Samuel Grimm, travels to Her- 
shey daily and spends the time from 
12:20 to 2:45 in observing and teach- 
ing. The greater amount of time al- 
lotted to each individual provides for 
work in one major and one minor 
field, rather than in only one, as form-

"Ye shall know the truth and the 
truth shall make you free." 

Today we are living in an age of 
progress, not gradual but swift and 
unhampered — a day of unlimited phy- 
sical and material resources, of 
boundless scientific contributions, of 
the most far-reaching educational 
program of the ages, yet many feel 
that the foundations of our own civ- 
ilizations are being destroyed. 

Hate, war, strife, lawlessness, lack 
of confidence unite with economic 
clashes and selfish industrial schemes 
that make impossible a stabilized and 
solidly founded society — man is pit- 
ted against man and brother against 
brother in the effort to achieve self- 
aggrandizement and material gain. 
Something is wrong and the world is 
in need. The reports of conditions in 
Europe daily send fears to our hearts 
and doubts concerning the future 
arise in our minds. The growing de- 
fense measures of the United States 
government raise immediate ques- 
tions. Is our entrance into the war 
inevitable? What will result in the 
Far East? 

The world needs a right spirit — a 
spirit of love, sympathy, kindness, 
selfishness and tolerance. The only 
way to meet the world's problems is 
to apply these principles first to our 
own individual lives and then the 
problems of the campus would be sol- 
ved, which in turn would lead to the 
solution of the more distance difficul- 

The great leaders of the country of 
the past, whose birthdays we are cel- 
ebrating this month, found their hope 
not in earthly aims, but in spiritual 
values. The rectification of our trouble 
and the stabilization of our society 
can only be brought about by a striv- 
ing for such ends. Why not try them ? 

last weeks letter 

The author of the letter concerning 
the interference of student recitals 
with Rec Hour and all other students

hension may now rest assured that 
Rec Hour will be held regularly on 
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30 
to 7:30. Student-recitals begin at 

At the beginning of the present 
school year the Student-Faculty Coun- 
cil ruled that Rec Hours could be held

The Tiuth 
About College 

by Alf Noise 

Walking up to the bulletin board to 
review the weekly events, a student is 
overheard asking his fellow comrade 
if he is going to attend a game and 
a dance. When the lad replies in the 
negative, he is exposed to one of 
those boisterous oratorical onslaughts 
relative to a lack of "school spirit," 
by not only the questioner, but by a 
group of his heckling cohorts as well. 

One need add nothing more to this 
type of daily corridor drama to create 
the well known atmosphere. It is true 
that the student who fails to attend 
various extra curricular events lacks 
a certain amount of spirit, but this 
kind of "school spirit" is too frequent- 
ly utilized by us as a guise to cover 
the truth. To yell and cheer for the 
team, to shine at the socials and to 
contribute to the various organiza- 
tions and not have the "true school 
spirit" is nothing short of hypocrisy. 

And now you ask, what is the na- 
ture of this so-called "true school 
spirit"? Pausing for a collection of 
something intangible, we shall say 
that it is that spirit of love we have 
for an educational institution with its 
many radiating attributes of knowl- 
edge, culture, and vocation. It is that 
spirit of respect we give to the build- 
ings, instructors, and sponsors. It is 
that spirit of pride which causes us 
to advertise the institution to the 
world and to extend our chests with 
as much self-gratification as a Har- 
vard man. It is that spirit of cooper- 
ation which inspires us to aid in every 
way by personal contribution to keep 
its banner flying high in the blue sky 
of truth and wisdom. 

If you have read this far, you will 
no doubt wonder what has prompted 
this outburst of printed verbosity. 
Consider these several questions se- 
lected from a multitude of eligibles. 
Have you ever observed that some of 
the students receiving scholarships or 
some form of student aid are loudest 
in labeling our college a "dump"? 
Have you ever observed that some 
students who are in the "limelights" 
socially, athletically, or scholastically, 
are the quickest to overlooK the col- 
lege's hundred good points, to broad- 
cast to the world its several bad 
points? Have vou ever been askeu 
by those who have left the halls by 
graduation or otherwise, "Is Lebanon 
Valley — still a college"? Have you 
ever been asked by people misled by 
unfaithful students, "Are you going 
to college or going to Lebanon Val- 
ley" ? Have you seen her most prized 
students discourage other students 
from our ranks? Have you observed 
how certain class leaders advocate 
emptying the class treasury on some 
pleasure rather than leave one penny 
to their college's cultural needs? 

No matter how hard one works 
and plays at college, unless this true 
spirit i^ present, all that he does, is, 
or shall be isn't "worth a tinker's 
damn" to the college. His would-be 
contributions are but venom flowing 
through the college blood stream or 
cancerous tissue eating its way into 
the pure flesh of the institution. Med- 
ically, we should quickly stop the flow 
of poisoned blood or cut away the 
cancerous tissue. Why should we not 
duplicate this procedure on the hu- 
man equivalents on our campus ?

jazz notes 

by Maurie Erdman 

Holding an undisputed rank for Dixieland swing comes a young fellow 
who for the past few years has gained constantly in popularity. Who is the 
top ranker? There is but one great band in this line and that is Bobcat Bob 

Leading a 15-piece band of unbeatable quality the lineup consists of 
5 reeds, 6 brass and 4 rhythm. The larger group is broken up for a smaller 
swing group called the "Bobcats" which consists of 8 of the best soloists in 
the game. No other group in swing can come anywhere near touching this 
ensemble for good old Dixieland swing. In no other band is there such a 
group of famous artists. Listen to these big names. 

On sax is Eddie Miller ranking among the top 5 sax men of America; 
Irving Fazola, clarinet, has recently been replaced; Yank Lawson, of trum- 
pet fame is one of the most sought-after men in the game; trombonist War- 
ren Smith ranks as one of the best non-leading slip-horn musicians in the 
brass row of any band; Nappy Lamarr on guitar has little competition for 
his top notch rank; Joe Sullivan (Little Rock Getaway fame) replaced Zurke 
on piano and he too ranks high in the lineup of great pianists; Badanc on 
drums is by all means the greatest, beating competition such as Krupa, Fa- 
tool, Rich, McKinley, etc.; and Bobby Haggart on bass is unquestionably 
number one dog-houser. Can anyone name a greater gang? With such a 
group of top-notch musicians it is only natural that the band should rank 

For example of the band at work look up the following Decca waxings. 
Dixieland Swing— "Smoky Mary," "South Rampart Street Parade" and 
"At The Jazz Band Ball." 

Boogie Woogie — "Boogie Woogie Maxixie." 
Drums— Badanc's "Big Crash From China." 
Bass— Haggart's "Big Noise From Winnetka." 
Blues— "Gin Mill Blues" and a dozen others. 

True, Crosby is definitely not a sweet band. If, however, you pass up 
a chance to hear: this band you are missing the thrill of a lifetime. Some 
day when we look back at the pages of music history this band will rank 
with the never-to-be-forgottens such as the Original Dixieland Five and the 
Chicago Wolverines. Already they rank there and when the day comes 
that the band goes the long, long way this world will be minus the greatest 
lineup of artists ever to sit in one band.

themselves the forbidden privileges 
inherent in little escapades commonly 
known as A. W. O. L. 

It might prove interesting, we must 
admit, to get acquainted with the mil-

us that the "Indiantown Gappers" en-

ful stallions of a shiny chestnut var- 

Oh, well! That is neither here nor

our fair land. Let's stand together—

Stage Whi spers 

The Wig and Buckle program on Monday night proved to be an amazing 
combination of mystery, romance, and humor. The one-act play "Escape 
by Moonlight" had a strikingly different plot. Kathy Allen's lover Jeffrey 
Flynn had been dead for six months but on the day that was to have been 
their wedding day she sees him in a railroad station. That night her friend 
Dr. Hartwell tries to convince her that it was only an hallucination. Later 
Kathy broods alone in her apartment. Moonlight streams through a tall 
window as she sits musing. Suddenly the figure of Jeffrey appears dressed 
for a journey. He begs her to come away with him. His chosen exit out of 
the twentieth story apartment is through the open window. Holding tightly 
onto her phantom lover Kathy steps over the window sill— and the curtain 
tails. Just the right atmosphere of unreality was captured by having soft 
music played through the whole act. Floda Trout was the student director. 
Katy Dunkle did a splendid piece of work as the emotional idealistic Kathy. 
Ed Stansfield was a handsome convincing lover and Jack Dobbs especially 
good as the middle-aged Dr. Hartwell. The second of the one-act plays pre- 
sented by the club was highly successful according to the written criticisms 
submitted after the meeting. 

Donald Bartley supplied the humor of the evening. Have any of 
you theater-goers ever wondered how the production staff actually concocts 
some of the sound effects that make our modern drama so realistic? Mr. 
Bartley had all the answers to any such questions you might ask. From be- 
hind the velvet curtains he produced thunder, rain, and explosion, an ap- 
proaching airplane the crash of glass, hoof beats, and a slamming door. 
After each demonstration he came out and proceeded to explain the illusion. 

The falling rain proved to be rolling 
peas in a tilted tray. The door-sla" 1 ' 
mer looks much like an aqua-pl* n ?' 
Hoof beats were only the rhythm 
tapping of hollowed cocoanuts. ^ 00l ^ s

^It's these same Bisons that are at

pl, th their high scoring and their close 
defensive play. 
Without the services of Ed Schillo, 
Blue and White had little to offer. 
t\\\\o and Mease together present a 
formidable first line of offense and 


but Mease alone was unab'e 

bear the burden. Schillo was con 
Ld to the infirmary for several days 
•ith some ailment that required rest. 
^ Though scoring only nine counters, 
Captain Mease still handled that end 
f the ball game for the Valley, while 
t the same time struggled valiantly 
. an effort to marshall his forces 
int0 a unified and well-disciplined 
quintet. As a result, Mease had little 
opportunity to take his pet pokes at 
the basket, but the rest of the Dutch- 
men shot at will, although they made 
very few of their shots. However, 
some of the futile stabs did drop and 
enabled L. V. C. to present a fair- 
effort against the odds. 

On the Bucknellian side of the led- 
ger, two eagle-eyed lads notched up 24 
points between them to steal the show. 
George Haines with 13 counters was 
top man, while Joe Bugro trailed him 
with 11 telling tallies. 

The first period was slow with the 
Valley playing clever ball to lead 6-5 
at the end of the first stanza. Buck- 
nell solved the zone defense in the 
second quarter and began to make 
some clever shots, posting a 13-6 mar- 
gin to lead 18-12 at the intermission. 

In the third chapter, both teams 
pecked away with reckless abandon, 
Bucknell being more accurate and 
earning a 16-13 advantage to lead 34- 
25 at the three quarter mark. The 
final period saw Bucknell completely 
bottle the Dutchmen attack and gain 
a n 11-3 lead in the scoring to run 
»t a 45-28 victory. 

The game was featured with fre-

fJke Spectator 

by joe 

It appears from the spectator's 
point of view that athletics on Leb- 
anon Valley campus are taking a turn 
for the worse this year. Our varsity 
quintet seems to have lost its scoring 
punch, or else they're just letting the 
other team score more points than 
they are. 

The work of Captain Ralph Mease 
is a sight to enjoy as he dashes mad- 
ly and hopelessly about the floor try- 
ing to stave off apparent defeat. With 
Ed Schillo as his running mate, Mease 
is able to accomplish something, but 
when Ed is absent, as he has been in 
Ihe past two games, the sledding is 
tougher, because there is no one to 
trouble the opposing defense. As a 
result they usually stick two men on 
Mease and that's the end of that. 

The fencing team won its first 
match when they downed the G-burg 
outfit. Not many of us understand 
the technicalities of the sport but it 
certainly is fun to watch. The rest 
of the crowd seemed to enjoy it too. 

Here's an oddity in the sport world. 
The other day in the Day Student lea- 
gue, Sam Derrick endeavored to man- 
ipulate the fast break offense. Sam 
took the ball out of bounds under the 
opponent's basket. Bob Breen was at 
the other end. With a Herculean 
heave, Sam tossed the sphere to Bob, 
but unfortunately the throw was high 
and as a result it swished clearly 
through the hoop. It's too bad there 
was no camera handy to photograph 
Sam's look of amazement. 

The Sophs, conquerors of the Jun- 
iors, and students of Bill Gollam, have 
developed a system that is currently 
burning up the D. S. league. In the 
Dorm section, the Frosh are holding 
the upper hand with the Seniors press- 
ing them closely. 

Handball is at present holding the 
spotlight, the singles tournament pro- 
gressing rapidly. Some of the boys 
really give their all in their efforts. 

The gym classes seem to have re- 
ported to order, and Coach Bill Ullery 
is making some of the lads grunt and 
groan as they go through their calis- 
thenics. It's something new and the 
boys seem to really enjoy it. 

Wrestling Matches 

The Lebanon Valley Wrestling 
Team will journey to Lebanon next 
Thursday, February 27 to wrestle 
with the Lebanonites. All weights 
are open. If you have any ability con- 
tact Barney Bentzel for particulars. 



Meeting an intercollegiate opponent on the home floor for the first 
time Saturday, the foilsmen of the Lebanon Valley team defeated Gettys- 
burg to the tune of 12-4. 

This was the first, match for the opponents but the third for the home 
team. High scorer of the day was Phillips who took 15 points in three bouts 
but had only three points registered against) him. Zimmerman and Erdman 
followed in that order with total scores of 15-8 and 14-7 respectively. On 
the Gettysburg team Hall had the highest individual score, 13 points in his 
favor with 12 against him. 

Following is a summary of the scoring: 

Zimmerman, L. V. C, defeated Shilley, G-burg, 5-2.

Frosh Basketeers 
Lose Fifth Attack 

Newman Runs Up 
Fifteen Points; Light 
And Hoffmeister Score 

The L. V. C. Frosh lost their fifth 
straight game last Wednesday night, 
when they bowed to a determined Her- 
shey Junior College quintet by the 
score of 34-30. 

I The game started slowly with the 
L. V. first year men posting a 3-2 ad- 
vantage in the first quarter. In the 
second period the visitors earned a 
j 10-5 lead to go to the fore at the 
i intermission 13-7. At the start of the 
second half the game warmed up co 
a faster tempo with both teams sink- 
ing beautiful shots, but at the end of 
the third period the Hershey quintet 
led by a score of 27-17. A fourth 
period rally led by Cardinal Newman 
and Warren Light just fell short of 
victory as a pair of sensational sido 
shots by Gehman spelled the differ- 
ence between victory and defeat. 

The game was loosely played at 
times and was featured by ragged 
passing by both teams. Newman was 
the best bet for L. V. with 15 points, 
eight of them coming in the fourth 
period. The work of Light and Hoff- 
meister was another feature of the 
Valley's play. For the visitors Geh- 
man tallied six field goals to lead his 
team to victory. 

Stine And Stokes 
Take New Offices 

Dr. Clyde S. Stine and Dr. Milton 
L. Stokes are now occupying offices 
in the administration building and li- 
brary respectively. Dr. Stine has 
moved the material necessary for use 
in his department to Philo Hall and 
the small adjoining room. Taking 
the place which he vacated in the 
southeast corner of the second floor 
of the library is Dr. Stokes. Stu- 
dents desiring to contact these pro- 
fessors for conference will find them 
in the new locations. 

Juniors Topple 
From Top Place In 
D.S.B. League 

Sophs Lead 5-2 

The Sophomore team assumed the 
lead in the Day Students League by 
toppling the Juniors from that posi- 
tion last week by a 54-47 defeat. The 
Frosh downed the Seniors 46-30 to 
fight them out of the cellar. 

The Juniors and Sophs battled it 
out in the first half with the lead 
changing hands several times until 
the former outfit stood out 26-24 at 
intermission time. The Jrs. increased 
this lead 36-26, but were overcome by 
a spurt led by Little and Heagy. The 
two teams played on even terms as 
the Juniors tried in vain to regain 
the lead. "Lefty" Little rang up 27 
points to gain high scoring laurels for 
the day and Shay threw in 22 count- 
ers for the losing cause. 

The other game proved almost a 
run-away despite frequent substitu- 
tions in the last periods. Quarter and 
half scores stood at 13-4 and 29-15 
respectively with the Seniors in the 
van. A rally by the latter aggrega- 
tion failed to cut the advantage of 
the victors. Edwards and Carbaugh 
scored 18 and 15 counters to point 
the way to victory. Rakow accounted 
for 23 of his team's total of 30 points 
in making a one-man demonstration 
for the Seniors.

Lebanon Concert Series 
Features Solo Dancer 

Carola Goya, favorite solo dancer of 
five continents, will make her appear- 
ance before the Lebanon Community 
Concert Association Monday, March 
3 at 8:15 in the Lebanon High School 
Auditorium. Assisting her will be Bea- 
trice Burford, harpist, and Emilio 
Osta, pianist. 

Young and beautiful, La Goya is 
complete mistress of the technical side 
of her art, and her recitals have crea- 
ted a veritable furore wherever pre- 
sented — in all the large cities from 
coast to coast in the United States and 
Canada, Europe, South America, and 
South Africa. 

With typical Spanish rhythms and 
steps according to the traditional 
dances of the various provinces and 
cities there as her foundation, and 
calling into play her remarkable gifts 
at pantomime, she has created dance 
dramas that run the gamut from 
comic gayety and audicity to flaming 
emotion. For this purpose she has used 
the music of the great contemporary 
Spanish composers, who have embell- 
ished and sublimated the characteris- 
tic melodies and rhythms of old Spain 
in the modern manner. 

Miss Burford is one of the few art- 
ists who have made known the true 
beauty of the harp, and Osta merits 
recognition as a concert soloist and 
composer as well as an accompanist. 

The program follows:

Appeal Made for Assent 

Former President Herbert Hoover

for furnishing food for the five small 
democracies of Europe which are fac- 
ing starvation. This plan is being 
Placed before the thinking American 
people for a trial. A few weeks ago 
the following suggestions were made 
to the British and German Govern- 

"That we make an initial experi- 
ment in Belgium to test out whether 
these people can be saved without mil- 
itary advantage to either side. That 
this test comprise feeding only thru 
soup kitchens, where the people come 
to get their food and thus there can 
be no question of feeding Germans. 
That at the beginning we provide for 
one million adults and two million 
children: the adults to receive half 
a pound of bread and an allowance 
°f soup, the children to receive spe- 
cial food in addition, including pre-

erend Lawrence F. Schott as speaker. 
On Tuesday, February 25, Rev. Schott 
spoke on "Christian Foundation for 
Peace and what we can do about it." 

The theme of Rev. Schott's speech 
was that thinking people must not be 
influenced by mob hysteria and prop- 
aganda. In the hands of educated 
youth lies the power to prevent the 
citizens of our nation from being car- 
ried into conflict as happened in the 
last World War. 

He appealed to the good sense of 
the student body in weighing the sit- 
uation for what it is actually worth. 
r hat war can never be the means of 
"making the world safe for democ- 
racy" was one of his main points. 
World peace must be based on some- 
thing deeper, a mutual feeling deriv- 
ed from the recognition of spiritual 
values rather than partisan antago- 
nism springing from material de- 

Rev. Schott has been especially in- 
terested in youth work so that he ap- 
proached his subject from the posi- 
tion which college students must hold 
Speaking forcefully, he asked for a 
realization of duties to the nation, 
other men, and religious and ethical 

Rabbi Philip D. Bookstaber, who 
was to have spoken on "Religion's 
Stake in Democracy" was unable to 
appear as scheduled on Wednesday 

L. V. Debaters Meet 
Elizabethtown Men 

Last evening in Philo Hall, the 
Lebanon Valley Debating Team de- 
bated with the Elizabethtown team on 
the question, "Resolved: that a per- 
manent union between the United 
States and British Commonwealth of 
Nations should immediately be estab- 
lished." Solomon Caulker and Joseph 
Gittlen upheld the affirmative side for 
L. V., while Elizabethtown argued the 
negative viewpoint. 

Through the efforts of Donald Bart- 
ley, the debate manager, the debaters 
have planned a proposed tour for the 
week of March 17. Monday of that 
week they will meet Ursinus; Tues- 
day, Wagner College; Wednesday; 
Moravian (a radio debate) and Muh- 
lenberg; Thursday, Delaware Univer- 
sity; and Friday, both Albright and 
Elizabethtown. Five or six men, not 
yet selected, will go on this trip. 

The I. R. C. cabinet meeting 
scheduled for March 3, has been 
postponed until March 10.

Editor Sends 
Quittie Copy 
For Printing 

The 1942 "Quittie" will go to press 
on Friday, February 28, 1941. Work 
began on the engraving two weeks 
ago. On February 25, the complete 
composition was delivered to the print- 
er along with more engraving copy. 

All engraving copy, however, is not 
in. The Junior formal pictures and 
the beauty selection have not yet been 
delivered from Zamsky studio. All en- 
graving copy, with the exception of 
the above mentioned, not yet com- 
pleted, will be delivered to the printer 
by Saturday, March 1. 

The book is one hundred and sixty 
pages long with adds. It contains 
thirty-two pages in color; cartoons, 
over five hundred pictures; beauty 
section; and a formal and informal 
picture of each Junior. Each Senior's 
picture will appear in the annual. 

For the cover a padded whirlpool 
green has been chosen. The design and 
the title plan will not be displayed 
verbally or otherwise before distribu- 

The book, depending on delivery of 
Zamsky's glossies, will be delivered to 
the students May 2, 1941 or May 9, 

Movies Are Shown 
At Biology Club 

On Thursday, February 21, the Bi- 
ology club held its monthly meeting 
in the biology lecture room. At this 
time the movies taken during the Bi- 
ology Club's weekend at Mount Gret- 
na were shown. Colored movies show- 
ing the beaches, plant life, and the 
Bach singing tower, taken by Mrs. 
Derickson in Florida were previewed. 
To conclude the program, Dr. Derick- 
son presented slides of a field trip tak- 
en while he was doing graduate work 
n Jamaica. 

Students Support 
World Friendship 
By Annual Drive 

The World Friendship Drive will 
be launched during the week of March 
third by the combined bodies of the 
Y. W. C. A., Y. M. C. A., and the Life 
Work Recruits. In this campaign mon- 
ey is collected to finance the sending 
of a teacher for one year to the Al- 
bert Academy in Sierre Leone, Afri- 
ca. In the past this delegate has been 
a junior selected from one of the five 
colleges uniting in this project. 

During this first week of the drive 
Dr. Clyde Lynch will conduct chapel 
services stressing the theme of friend- 
ship. In the Friday period the Y. M. 
C, A. and Y. W. C. A. will present 
a program for the enlightenment of 
the students as to the purpose and 
method of the World Friendship theme,

In spite of the absence of the tra 
ditional smoke rings, the peanut shells 
and the hearty booing of the specta 
tors, the L club held a most interest 
ing and successful sport show ii 
Engle Hall, last Friday night. 

Hard pressed for funds, the organ 
ization started its drive for finances 
this drive being climated by a verj 
much appreciated athletic carnival 
The funds obtained from this charity 
show will be used to purchase awards 
for the deserving athletes of Lebanoi 
Galley College. 

A total of one hour's entertainmem 
was enjoyed by the one hundred fans 
that attended. It was good entertain- 
ment, interspersed with a bit of hu 
mor by the "Dead End Kids" of th< 
men's dorm, and ended by a bit of the 
terpsichorean art in the Alumni Gym 

The show got under way when an- 
nouncer Robert G. Hackman cautions- 
ly edged his way to the footlights 
fearful of being bombed off the plat- 
form by the raucous yells of the gal- 
lery. As an expectant hush settled ovei 
the crowd, Dutch quickly made his 
announcements requesting that nc 
smoke be blown toward the arena. He 
recalled his fight with Dusek in '34, 
which he lost because "smoke got in 
his eyes." Because there were no cele- 
brities to be introduced the first match 
got under way. 

The paperweight division of the 
wrestling team, with Van Arden 
Swindell and J. Richard Phillips fur- 
nishing the grunt and groan, brought

Delphians Enjoy 
Anniversary Fete

Whiz-boom and we whirled with the 
mow. Swish, and it was gone intc 
the stillness of the night — but I re- 
member. It's a mixed-up memory col- 
ored with people, laughter, music, 
dancing, bad weather, cokes, sleep 
:ood, flowers, jewel box, favors, cars, 
late hours, and fun. 

A very precious memory of Febru- 
ary 22, 1941. Flags were flying be- 
cause it was Washington's birthday, 
but it was also the day of Delta 
Lambda Sigma's Nineteenth Anniver- 
sary Dinner Dance, held, this year, 
at the Hotel Abraham Lincoln in 
Reading, Pennsylvania. 

Soft lights and music do something 
to people, but I remember seeing some 
very new couples at Delphian. Then 
beside these were the "usuals" and 
the alumni. Barbara Bowman, Agnes 
Morris, the Holdcraft sisters, Alice 
Richie, and Katharine Zwally repre- 
sented the last group. 

First of all came the receiving line 
— remember? Ralph Shay and Eliza- 
beth Sattazahn broke the ice by smil- 
ing bravely and doing the first bit of 
handshaking. They found the Del- 
phian presidents and the chaperones 
in it. Dr. and Mrs. Derickson, Dr.

receiving line, but Miss Gillespie, Dr.

In looking across the seas we no- 
tice certain totalitarian powers whose 
acts have not received entirely the ap- 
probation of this generation. We know 
full well that they will not receive the 
approbation of the next generation. It 
is also known that such acts will never 
be fully approved by posterity. 

But little regard does the totalitar- 
ian leader have for the condemnation 
of posterity. The dictator has no re- 
spect for the writings of historians 
except as they serve his purpose. The 
leader of the state lives only for the 
present. He does not work for the 
good of the state after his decease. 
He seems to be operating only for the 

These men have no regard for the 
denunciation of future people. In fact, 
even reproof by present peoples does 
not halt their disregard for the rights 
of other nations. The minds of such 
groups of men have been distorted un- 
til they have become blind to any 
thought of what the human race will 
determine to have been their general 
working principle. 

These dictators cannot see that ends 
do not always justify the means. They 
have no sense of right or wrong. Even 
with our sense of ethics, we cannot 
fathom their purposes. Their poli- 
cies are entirely void of purpose or 
reason. They cannot see what the fu- 
ture will bring. They cannot open 
heir eyes and see the censure to be 
placed on their perverted motivation 
by posterity. 


Speaking . . . 

Each semester the Carnegie Endow- 
ment for International Peace sends an 
instalment of books for the Interna- 
tional Relations Club. These books 
are a witness to the far-reaching ef- 
fect the present tragic world war is 
having upon our everyday thinking. 
These books and pamphlets are re- 
viewed below. 

THE CITY OF MAN by Herbert 
Agar, et al. 
This Declaration on World Democ- 
racy is "the outcome of the collective 
thinking of a group of persons pro- 
foundly concerned about the future of 
our civilization in the face of the im- 
measurable dangers threatening it to- 
day. It is a statement of their faith 
and hope." (Publishers' Note). To 
this reviewer it appears that charity 
and moderation might profitably have 
formed a part of the deliberations.

Stage WA, 


Preparations are already being 
made for the next meeting of the Wig 
and Buckle. Three plays have been 
scheduled for production that night, 
each directed by a member of the 
senior class of Wig and Buckle. 

Martha Jane Koontz has definitely 
selected the play which she will direct. 
It is a radio play. "Air Raid," by 
Archibald Mac Leish. This is an en- 
tire play in verse, somewhat compar- 
able to the famous war play written 
just last year, "Key Largo," by Be- 
net. "Air Raid" begins in one of the 
American broadcasting stations, and 
then is shifted to one of the border 
towns in Europe just as war is to be 
declared. It is a peaceful summer 
morning, and the women in the tene- 
ment house on the roof of which the 
broadcasting equipment is set up are 
going about their business in the us- 
ual manner, quite certain that there 
will be no danger for them. ... It is 
extremely interesting to know that 
the complete script of this play was 
in the hands of the Columbia Broad- 
casting System before the European 
crisis in September of 1938. Some of 
you may have heard this play over 
the radio with Aline MacMahon in the 
feature role. 

Ellen Ruppersberger has tentative- 
ly selected "The Fallen Bough" by 
Donlevy for her vehicle. This drama 
was written for an audience of adult 
intelligence. It is the tragedy of a tal- 
ented cripple who saw his own wife 
falling in love with another man while 
he sat helpless to change the sana- 

Margaret Bordwell has also merely 
made a tentative selection of the play 
which she wishes to direct. This is 
"The First Margaret," a historical 
play about Benedict Arnold by Laing. 
This is about the idealistic Benedict 
Arnold at the beginning of the Revo- 
lution, and not the traitor as he turn- 
ed out to be later. The purpose of 
this play is to recall that before he 
was a traitcr, Arnold was a great 
colonial hero. There are some diffi- 
culties to be overcome before this play 
may be given; the main one being the 
matter of costumes. 

If anyone on campus wishes to write 
a play which they would be willing to 
have presented at these meetings, it 
would be greatly appreciated as the 
supply of good non-royalty plays is 
rather slim. 

L. V. Bundles For 
■ - ■ Britain 

Rally 'round the fire, girls — and 
don't forget our knitting needles! 
Kuit two, pearl two — sweaters, socks, 
anything — if you can't fit corners and 
curves, scarfs may prove useful to 
some poor soul suffering from the tra- 
ditional fogs of London — and then 
too, spring rains are coming on. 

A latent industry seems to have 
seized upon the coeds of America. 
However, the epidemic does not yet 
seem to have reached L. V. They tell 
us even the debs are doing their bit — 

The Y. W. C. A. has done its bit 
by means of a contribution of ten dol- 
lars toward the purchase of a mobile 
kitchen for relief work in Britain. 
This entitles any girl on the campus 
to get yarn — free of charge — at the 
United Brethren Church in Annville 
any Wednesday afternoon — which 
yarn is to be utilized in the making 
of some article to comprise part of a 
bundle for Britain. Here's a chance 
to display your talents (assuming, 
of course, that you possess the afore- 
mentioned talents) for The Cause. 

It might even give you something 
to dream about nights — your sweater 
warming some nice, fair-haired Briton 
(????) perhaps wounded in the ser- 
vice of the R. A. F., giving his all for 
defense of his home. Ah, Romance! 
You can't escape it, even in this prac- 
tical age of steel and machines and 
cannon (deviation from the subject, 
I know) . Anyway— to get back to the 
subject — he may be someone's brother 
— or something— and it's a lovely sen- 
timent, anyway. 

If any men have read thus far, 
you too may do your bit, fellas. A lit- 
tle contribution of cigarettes or such 
would probably be appreciated— that 
is, if you don't knit— and if you're not 
in the army yourself. 

"It's a Long Way to Tipperary" (no 
reference to G. H. Earle, if you 
please) . It's a good idea to "Keep the 
Home Fires Burning," but a little 
"Helping Hand" to the boys "Over 
There" may go a long way to keeping 
the fires bright, so how about it? A 
little grease on the needles, a little 
expression of helpfulness, may make 
the world look a little brighter thru 
the smoke of incendiary bombs and 
gun smoke for a people who have 
shown themselves possessed of rare 
courage and a facility to make sacri- 
fices stolidly and uncomplainingly.

Campus Brotherhood 

Although the author of any theme which carries a religious note sub- 
jects himself to the saber-like criticism of certain individuals, it is only 
just, as well as important, that we should give more than superficial con- 
sideration to this thing called "brotherhood." If we fail to obtain tolerance 
in our youth for the race or creed of our fellowmen, we can be assured that 
our future contributions will continue to add to the now too many blackened 
pages of history. 

Please let us do some serious and practical thinking on this matter. 
How many times have you seen people persecuted in their daily lives be- 
cause of their membership in certain religious denominations? How often 
have you seen the fruitless results of bitter arguments centering about the 
same subject? We cannot help but be aware of the pain which arises daily 
from the gaping wound of history to which we have failed to apply the heal- 
ing balms of understanding. 

And you say what can I do as an individual to alleviate the torments 
of an ancient wound? We tend to overlook the contributions which arise 
when we as individuals start in our youth to kill the germs of bigotry by 
applying the proper antiseptic of wisdom and tolerance. In applying these 
antiseptics one does not ask for a surrender of personal beliefs, but rathei 
a propagation of the gieatest respect for the beliefs of others. 

We should cease questioning the beliefs of others when it comes to in- 
cluding them in our social, political or personal classification. We shou 
rephrase our question to learn not what theory he believes, but rathei 
what theory he practices. Many religions suffer from those people who are 
classified in a certain group in name only because they fail to exemplify ^ 
their daily lives what their church teaches. Although these individuals 
perpetrating false impressions we should not permit ourselves to judge 
worth of a whole for these lauded actions of a few. These persons are 
ing religion as a cloak to cover the evils or weaknesses of their lives- ^ 

Too many of us think of religion as a Sunday occurrence which cus o 
has forced upon us. To give a few minutes to God one day a week a 
forget Him the rest of the week is but making religion a social come ^ 
Unless the teachings of Christ be portrayed in our every day actions * 
we can justly say that our understanding of religion is dead. Since 
teachings abounded in love and charity for one's fellow men, how can ^ 
be true to them by fostering a personal hate for those of another belie reS . 
how can we have charity and constantly place obstacles in the pr°g 
sive way of those outside our particular sect. t he 
Since our college days seek to train us for life, should we ignore^^ g 
truth about the matter? To say that the great door of democracy dep g3 y- 
upon the strength of its hinges of religion may be considered a P rett . 3 ^ or ia- 
ing, but it carries weighted meaning. You revolt against religious th e t0 
ing with a fighting spirit unequaled, why can you not transfer the ng 


conquer the evils of sin? This would be fitting with your desire 
something in a practical way rather than listening to so much V reaC oJl e 
One can preach until he is blue in the face, but unless each and ever ^ p le, 
of us strives to make this a better world by our good living and eX» 
the cause of brotherhood is lost.

Strange as it seems, it was Lebanon 
Valley's second league win in the cur-

victories at the expense of Gettys-

The Valley men came out fast to run

Sparked by Mease, who scored nine 
points in the first period, and by Ed 
Schillo, just out of bed from an ill-

Bullets, by advantageously using a 
fast break that bewildered the Orange 
and Black. 

It was this 14-6 lead piled up by the 
Blue and White that told the story of 
the ball game. It was large enough to 
prevent Coach Bream's boys from over- 
taking the Annvillains, and allowed 
the Intrierimen to coast to victory.

First-Year Men 
Handed Defeat By 
G-Burg, Ursinus 

A scrappy band of L. V. C. Fresh- 
men almost pulled the upset of the 
year when they held the highly trust- 
ed G-burg Frosh to a narrow 23-20 

Using a shifting zone defense the 
L. V. Frosh forced their opponents 
to take numerous long shots during 
the first period which ended in a 5-5 
stalemate. By half time the visitors 
increased their advantage to 14-9. The 
third period saw the Dutchmen out- 
score their rivals by a 6-4 margin on- 
ly to trail by an 18-15 score. The 
final period saw Warren Light come 
into the game in place of "Pee Wee" 
Miller and Light promptly sank four 
consecutive foul shots to push the 
yearlings to a 20-19 margin. The lead 
was short-lived as Pearson and Yovic- 
sin sank field goals in the last two 
minutes of play to clinch the victory. 

Cardinal Newman again led scoring 
for the losers with two field goals and 
a brace of fouls, but the floor game 
of Nick Dorazio showed vast improve- 
ment over his previous plays.

STARK RATIONS— A Day's Food in Belgium 


The L. V. Freshman quintet lost 
their seventh consecutive game on 
Tuesday night when they dropped a 
34-23 decision to a sharp-shooting Ur- 
sinus five. 

Only in the first period did the 
Frockmen show any advantage when 
they posted a 5-2 lead. The Ursinus 
quintet began dropping shots from 
all angles in the second stanza to lead 
11-10 at half time. A fast third quar- 
ter featured by the one man scoring 
spree of Nick Dorazio found the Bears 
pulling further away from the Dutch- 
men to lead 25-18. In the final period 
the game would have turned into a 
riot had not the visiting coach sub- 
stituted freely and the final whistle 
found the "Wingless" Dutchmen again 
bowing in defeat. 

Dorazio and Kern showed up, but 
for Lebanon Valley with 9 and 6 
points respectively while practically 
every man in the Ursinus line-up 
shared in the scoring with Kuhn lead- 
ing the way with 6 points. 

was by one point. This lead was quick- 
ly nullified, however, when Mease de- 
posited a field goal in the hoop to put 
the Valley in the foreground again. 

The meager crowd that attends the 
L. V. C. home games came prepared 
to see some fire works, but they didn't 
materialize, although it wouldn't have 
taken much to start them. The victory 
avenged the defeat of the Dutchmen 
at Collegeville by these same Bears. 
It was a one point, last second win. 
The game itself was featured with fis- 
ticuffs, bottle breaking, and general 

It was the forward combination of 
Schillo and Mease that sparked the 
scoring drive, the two of them tally- 
ing 26 points. In the back court Sta- 
ley and Matala did an excellent job 
of preventing peep-shooters from 
sneaking in, while the floor work of 
Kubisen was of such a variety that 
the fans sat up and took notice. 

The game bordered on the rough 
side, both Schillo and Matala being 
thumbed to the showers via the fou- 
personal route. Two Ursinus lads also

The plate contains a piece of potato, a scrap of meat, and a dab of fat. 
On the table we see a hunk of bread and some tiny lumps of sugar. 

New York (Special)— What you 
see above does not depict a meal. 
It shows what a Belgian gets to eat 
during an entire day. 

He gets: — eight ounces of bread 
and one-third of one ounce of fat. 
He gets an ounce and one-half of 
meat, no bigger than a third of a 
package of cigarettes and not even 
one whole potato. Then he has an 
ounce and three-quarters of sugar. 

This photograph was taken in 
New York City, but is based upon 
authentic information from over- 
seas, sent to the National Commit- 
tee on Food for the Small Democra- 
cies, of which Mr. Herbert Hoover 
is honorary chairman. Three famine 
experts whom he ordered into Bel- 
gium reported on the true situation. 

Theoretically, rations are larger. 
For Instance, there should be five 
potatoes in the above picture, also 
a tiny heap of beans, a bit of oat- 
meal and some "ersatz" coffee. But 

food to supply even these terribly 
restricted rations simply does not 
exist. What you see in the picture 
is what a Belgian actually gets and 
must live upon — today. 

What does this mean? 

A human needs 2400 calories daily 
to exist— 3600 if he works. 

The food values on the plate rep- 
resent only 1038 calories. 

Slow starvation, this. Literally! 
But worse is to come! 

By February's end the bread ra- 
tion will disappear from the picture 
— because bread grain stocks will be 
exhausted and can be replaced only 
from overseas. 

By early March, slow starvation 
in Belgium is certain to become out- 
right famine. 

In the last war, America sent a 
billion dollars worth of food Into 
stricken Europe. Not a single pound 
was lost, or diverted Into any hands 
other than those of the people for 
whom it was intended. 

felt the force of referees' decisions 
as they too were ruled out. Only thru 
the skillful handling of Referee Day- 
hoff was the ball game kept out of 
the riot stage. 

Ursinus was unable to get a decent 
sleeper shot at the hoop all night, and 
resorted to long set shots, most of 
which were desperately accurate. The 
Valley on the other hand played a 
distinct set offense that clicked on all 
five cylinders all night. 

Lebanon Valley jumped out to an 
11-7 lead in the first quarter as Ed 
Schillo and Steve Kubisen led the at- 
tack. The Blue and White continued 
to outscore the Bears in the second 
quarter, and as half time came around 
L. V. C. was enjoying a 19-14 lead. 

Ursinus came out strong after the 
intermission to forge ahead 25-24, but 
there they stopped, as Mease and Co. 
began racking up deuces to hold a 32- 
25 advantage at the third quarter. 
In final stanza the Blue and White 
toyed with the ball, taking as few 
shots as possible, but scoring enough 
to come out on top 43-30. 

Ed Schillo led the scoring with 5 
fields goals and four singletons for 
a total of 14 points. Mease was next 
in line with six double deckers for 12 
points to aid his cause in the scoring 
race. Kubisen contributed seven points 
to the cause, in addition to playing 
an excellent floor game.

Sophs Continue 
Lead in M.D.S.L 

Seniors and Juniors 
Downed By Leaders 

The Sophomores increased their lead 
over the other teams in the Day Stu- 
dent Basketball circuit by wallopping 
the Seniors 61-32 last week. The 
Frosh also downed the fading Juniors 
33-30 to tie the latter outfit for sec- 
ond place. 

The Seniors spurted in the first 
quarter to lead the Sophs 15-6. The 
second-year men flashed into action 
in the second period to tie it up 23-23. 
The league-leaders really showed form 
in outscoring Derrick et al 23-3 in the 
third chukker. The Seniors dragged 
along in the last canto until the final 
whistle showed the scoreboard read- 
ing 61-32. Little again led his mates 
in the scoring column with 29 pointers 
and Derrick had a hot hand in can- 
ning 21 points. 

In dropping their fourth game in 
the last five contests the Juniors failed 
to show any of their old game. The 
winners used a zone defense effective- 
ly throughout the game. A surprising 
first quarter score stood at 2-2. Half- 
time saw the Juniors ahead 16-15. 
The Frosh came back to outscore the 
losers and lead 30-24 going into the 
last period. A Junior rally of 6 points 
fell short in the final quarter. Unger 
and Carbaugh were top hands for the 
winners with 14 and 12 points respec- 
tively and Boltz and Shay with 12 
apiece stood out for the vanquished.

The most outstanding sport event 
on the campus in the past week was 
of course the Sports Show conducted 
by the "L" Club last Friday evening. 
Highlighting the show was the boxing 
bout between "Teddy Ciamillo" and 
Felix Wagner. Both boys have gain- 
ed Golden Gloves Championships in 
the Harrisburg area in the past sev- 
eral seasons and are highly regarded 
in local boxing circles. 

Schmaltzer's airplane twirl with 
Johnny Eminhizer atop his shoulders 
brought a roar of applause from the 
two hundred odd spectators attend- 
ing the show. Students who failed 
to see the fencing team in action this 
year had a golden opportunity to do 
so in the sabres and foils bouts stag- 
ed early in the program. 

Every one is talking about the phe- 
nomenal play of the Sophomore ag- 
gregation in the Day Student's Lea- 
gue. The Sophs replaced the Juniors 
from the top of the heap by winning 
5 contests in a row since the Christ- 
mas vacation after losing 2 out of 3 
games prior to the holidays. On the 
other hand the Juniors have lost 4 
out of 5 games played in the same 
time and have failed to show any of 
the second half drive they had in the 
earlier portion of the schedule. The 
Seniors remain in the cellar, finding 
it impossible to put any formidable 
outfit on the floor in any one game. 

Not much has been heard of the 
play in the Dorm League except that 
a tie still exists between the Frosh 
and the Seniors who are battling it 
out for the top position. The other 
two teams are having quite a go of 
t in trying to keep out of the cellar. 

Reports from the handball court re- 
veal that "Bob" Breen single champ 
last year was upset by John Wise in 
a quarter final round match that went 
to three games. Breen was defeated 
by only 3 and 5 points in the games 
ie dropped to "Dark Horse" Wise. 
The final match will be played as 
-oon as further matches in the lower 
bracket are completed.

holds in their bag of tricks, but none 
were tricky enough to throw anyone. 
As the lads became more and more 
exhausted, the bout became more in- 
teresting to watch. The bell rang as 
both boys made a desperate effort to 
stand on their feet. The third man 
in the ring was George L. Grow, up 
and coming wrestling official from 

In the second bout, the crowd was 
introduced to Ike Long present grunt 
coach of the Blue and White troops. 
He acted as referee of a bout between 
Punchy Eminhizer and big Hank 
Schmalzer. The grapplers started fast 
with Eminhizer holding an edge. Seiz- 
ing the huge framework of Schmalzer, 
he calmly tossed him over his shoulder. 
Hank retaliated with a flying tackle. 
As the match drew near its close, 
Schmalzer hoisted the exhausted Em- 
inhizer over his head and whirled him 
around in a spin. As the bell clanged 
both groaners dropped to the floor, 
dead tired. 

Next on the program came an ex- 
hibition of fencing, both foil and sab- 
er. In order that the crowd might 
know what the thing was all about, 
Erdman explained the scoring sys- 
tem of a fencing match, and also dis- 
cussed some of the principles involved. 

In the first exhibition, Erdman and 
Fritchie handled the foils. It was a 
seven minute bout, with the touches 
being recognized. By virtue of some 
skillful thrusts and parries, Erdman 
held an upper edge at the end of the 
allotted time. 

In the second exhibition, Erdman 
challenged Bryce with the sabers. 
Utilizing a masterful slashing charge, 
Erdman slowly forced Bryce to re- 
treat. Rapp then entered the picture 
to take up Erdman's post. By adept 
dodging and thrusting, Bryce was able 
to maintain an even stand with Rapp. 
Interesting in these bouts was the 
formal, gentlemanlike conduct of the 
participants. What with the waving 
around of foils and sabers, the crowd 
resorted to ducking to avoid any fly- 
ing steel. 

To prevent boredom from overcom- 
ing the spectators a little diversion 
was offered in the musical line. The 
Dead End gang presented a little 
schoolroom scene that actually made 
the Dean smile. With "Harriet" Ma- 
tala enacting the schoolmarm with the 
pipe, the students were quite disciplin- 
ed until "Roberta" Weiler entered the 
scene. As the pupils hoarsly and un- 
harmoniously sang "Schnitzel Bank." 
Roberta recalled the fact that she had 
neglected a duty before her departure 
to school. With utmost courage, she 
daintily departed, only to return later, 
composed and apparently relieved, The 
scene ended with the completion of 
the song. 

Abe Morison and Bob Weiler col- 
laborated to render a vocal selection, 
Bob doing the choral work, while Abe 
tickled the ivories.

His first number was "Dizzy Fingers"

Then came the pugilistic bouts. In 
the first jabber Shay took on Killer 
Hall in what was to have been a three 
round fracas. Shay's left worked 
wonders in the first round, but in the 
second, Hall stepped inside to beat s 
tattoo on Shay's eye, forcing the ref 
eree to halt the bout. Shay's shouts oi

The referee was Willie Greene from 
the Hershey barracks, Ted Ciamillo' 
trainer, and also one time member of 
the Olympic boxing team. 

In the second bout, Fred Bosnyak 
and Barney Bentzel traded fists in 
three round go. The lads were willing 
and they threw plenty of leather, but 
after the first round the cushions be 
came slightly weighty. As a result 
both of the boys could barely hold 
their arms up. Neither one was sorry 
when the final whistle sounded. 

The semi-final wind-up brought to 
gether two skilled exponents of the 
fisticuff game, George Pasovano and 
Ralph Meeks, two lads situated at the 
Hershey barracks of the Pennsylvania 
Motor Police. The gentlemen skillfully 
weaved and dodged, jabbed and black 
ed, all to the immense enjoyment of 
the crowd, which never before had 
seen this angle of boxing. They 
thought that in order to have a good 
fight, there must be a knockout, but 
their ideas were changed after wit 
nessing the adeptness of the police- 
men's fists. 

The long awaited final go immed- 
iately followed. In this bout Ted Cia- 
millo, the pride and joy of Lebanon 
Valley, undefeated in two year's com- 
petition, and uncrowned champion of 
the Harrisburg Golden Gloves tourna- 
ment, took on Felix Wagner, the 
crowned champion of the tournament. 
Both lads come out fast to put on the 
most skillful exhibition of the even- 
ing. Their footwork was awe-inspir- 
ing, their punching terrific, and their 
attacking and countering was worth 
the price of admission alone. The boys 
went through three fast rounds nei- 
ther fighter holding any edge over 
the other, both jabbing with lightning 
speed. The speed of Ciamillo is con- 
trasted to the punching of Wagner 
made the bout much more interesting. 
As the bout ended, Ted was working 
his left in much more effectively. The 
crowd burst forth with loud applause 
when they realized the show was over. 

T<f top off all this intense strain of 
taking and giving every punch, a bit 
of recreation in the form of dancing 
was offered to the faithful that sup- 
ported the L club in its first venture 
of this kind.

Our Town" As Harrisburg Does It 

Twenty-one members of the Wig 
and Buckle Club journeyed to Harris- 
burg on Tuesday, February 25, where 
they were "first nighters" for the 
Harrisburg Community Theatre's in- 
terpretation of Thornton Wilder's Pul- 
itzer Prize Play, Our Town. They 
were accompanied by Dr. George G. 
Struble, director and faculty adviser 
of the Wig and Buckle. 

"Our Town," Thornton Wilder's 
first full-length play to reach Broad- 
way, won the superlative acclaim of 
dramatic critics and theatre-goers for 

by Bruce Souders 

its unique style. Having no scenery 
or stage props save several trellises,

depends largely upon the merits of 
its stage manager and its crew of 
backstage artists. Bouquets can be 
thrown with all sincerity into the 
arms of the Harrisburg Community 
Theatre for having produced these 
two prerequisites of an unusual stage 
play. The sound effects were syn- 
chronized almost to perfection with 
the action of the characters and 
events on stage. The hum of lawn- 

mower, the tinkling of the milk man's 
bottles and carrier and the neighing 
of his horse Bessie, as well as the 
timely whistle of the "5:15 from Bos- 
ton" actually brought these non-ex- 
isting props upon the stage. The 
lighting, too, is long to be remem- 
bered. Each changing scene required 
a different lighting effect, and it was 
there. The shadow from the light 
shining through the stained-glass win-

York, Director of the American As- 
sociation of Colleges since 1937, has 
been selected to address the gradu- 
ates and guests on the occasion of the 
Seventy-second Commencement, Mon-

Prof. Miller Speaks 
At Lebanon Meeting 

Mr. Frederick K. Miller, Acting 
Professor of History of Lebanon Val- 
ley College, wa's the chief speaker at 
the Inter-Faith Youth Council of Leb- 
anon County, held in the Harding 
Junior High School Auditorium, Leb- 
anon, on Thursday, February 27. 

Introduced by Professor John W. 
Hedge, superintendent of the Lebanon 
city schools, Professor Miller stressed 
the importance of youth in today's 
world of uncertainty in the following 
words: "We need have no fear for 
Democracy if we take care of our 
young people." 

Further, he emphasized the nec- 
essity for youth to become aware of 
its part in living the democratic way 
by contrasting the advantages of liv- 
ing in America with the disadvan- 
tages of living in foreign countries 
infested with isms and dictatorships. 

Appearing on the same program 
was Alex Rakow, a senior in Lebanon 
Valley College, who was acting on be- 
half of the Phalanx Club of which he 
is the past president. Dorothea Don- 
ough, also a student of Lebanon Val- 
ley College, was one of the committee 
in charge of the program.

V scoop 

La Vie has triumphed again! The 
difficult task of holding the May Day 
election unexpectedly and keeping the 
results absolutely secret has been ac- 
complished. However in spite of our 
pride in the completion of this scoop, 
we do wish to express our apprecia- 
tion to Dr. Clyde Lynch, who made 
it possible for us to hold the election 
on Wednesday. 


La Vie Collegienne wishes to con- 
gratulate Miss Jean Cox, who will 
preside as Queen in the May Day 
festicities, and Miss Ellen Ruppers- 
berger who will act as her Maid of 


The late arrival of La Vie at the 
homes of the Day students has long 
been a thorn in the flesh. In an 
attempt to more quickly distribute 
the news, the copies will be placed in 
both the men and women's Day stu- 
dent rooms on Thursday evening. This 
is only an experiment. Comments on 
the outcome will be gladly received 
in the editorial box in the library. 

^ chapel speaker 

Althoughs the presenting of bou- 
quets is a rather unusual ceremony 
for editors to participate in, we find 
another presentation apropos this 
time to the person or persons respon- 
sible for securing Rabbi Bookstaber 
to appear in chapel during Brother- 
hood Week. His sane and thought pro- 
voking address has been a subject of 
conversation during the past week 
and has been a means of reviving 
and stimulating religious faith. Dr. 
Bookstabler will be welcome on Leb- 
anon Valley Campus at any time in 
the future. 

world friendship 

On Friday of this weeq the religi- 
ous organizations of Lebanon Valley 
College will cooperate with the stu- 
dents of the four United Brethren 
Colleges and Bonebrake Seminary to 
support a student missionary in Afri- 
ca. Whenever the word missionary is 
mentioned certain students immediate- 
ly close their minds or make dis- 
paraging remarks about the entire 
project. At a time when forces of 
evil are loose in the world, there is a 
definite need to share our Christian 
ideals and institutions with those who 
have been less fortunate. It is an old 
idea that he who does not share will 
lose that which he possesses. Remem- 
ber this fact.

Flash! .... Thanx to the Shadow, Secret Agent X-9, Superman, The 
Lone Ranger, and the Ghost of Christmas Past, here's a news-tip hot off the 
wires: "People are beginning to have their doubts as to who is in charge 
of Monday's freshman chem lab section. When one enters within said por- 
tals, he is sure to find Jack McFadden, popular freshman from Harris- 
burg, surrounded by a group of interested coeds — Ruth Haverstock (Oh! 
Oh!), Ruth Graybill, Marian Kreider, et al. It is doubtful whether Jack 
is always expounding chemistry when there is a much better source of in- 
formation available in the form of Bob Rapp" .... Problem: Who wrote

jazz notes 

by Maurie Erdman 

For some years the radio has been 
featuring small vocal groups backed 
up by piano or organ. More recently 
the number of such groups has de- 
creased but where have they gone? 
Perhaps if we look at a brand new 
trend we can answer the question. 

Remember a few years ago when 
Fred Waring featured Babs and Her 
Brothers? Mo*e recently, 1937 to be 
exact, the Andrews Sisters took the 
spotlight with their own brand of 
singing swing with tricky words. 
These two combinations may be called 
a part of the what-has-gone-before of 
the newest trend in popular dance 

Last summer Tommy Dorsey re- 
leased Ruth Lowe's "I'll Never Smile 
Again" on Victor which immediately 
struck the pay dirt. With a vast and 
unexpected demand for the release 
the Frank Sinatra — Pied Pipers stock 
jumped sky high. All summer their 
popularity surged upward until their 
more recent "Stardust," "Oh Look 
At Me Now" and "You Might Have 
Belonged To Another" smashed their 
own records. 

Hot on the trail for the same kind 
of stuff came Maestro Miller who at- 
tempted to supply the demand by 
signing the "Modernaires" on the 
dotted line after hearing the Bluebird 
release of "Make Believe Ballroom 

Tops in the line were the four 
King Sisters who were gobbled up by 
Alvino Rey. Bluebird released one of 
their best, "St. Louis Blues" not long 
ago and many more hits have been 
scored since by these four. 

Perhaps the most recent additions 
to the line is another small group backed 
by Bob Crosby and his Bob Cats, call- 
ed the Bob-o-Links. Released on Decca 
a few weeks back is a waxing of "You 
Forgot About Me" which is a surefire 
gold mine. 

On choral backgrounds we might 
also include the Okay release, "Dark- 
ness" by the McFarland Twins, and 
Mitchell Ayres "Nighty-night" on 

Your next question is sure to con- 
cern the importance of all this. Well, 
first it is important because it repre- 
sents a new phase of modern dance 
music which is unrolling before our 
very eyes; and secondly, such a de- 
velopment is sure to give rise to a 
new stock of young singing talent. 
You don't believe it? Sometime you 
might look up Victor 25675-B re- 
leased in 1927 or thereabouts. It is 
plenty corny, but it features a lad 
singing with Paul Whiteman who has 
gone somewhere in this world. The 
name? Oh, it was only Bing Crosby.

Stage WL 

Well, my faithful follo'we 
ive such a thing, let's g ■ 
To begin, I really am ashamed 

and every one of you underclas* ^ 
It seems that the other day a Sltlet1 ' 
senior tried to cast her pl ay Cer ^iri 
good play, "Air Raid," and 
pened? Did she get a good turn 
so that the play would have the 
best that the school could offer? 
Did she get enough to cast thp i 
at all? NO! How many did show Pay 
ONE, ... one person had the S pi ri w ? 
answer the notice that was placed 
the most conspicuous place in both ° B 
ad building and the conserve,-? 6 
bulletin board. If no one is gofo" 
read the board, as the general e ? ^ 
ran, why not dispense with it 
ly? The one thing that the student 
have had to complain about ever si 
this venerable senior can remembT 
was that there isn't enough to do th r 
won't cost anything. So this year tf 
play idea was arranged, and a g00 d 
many people have come out to see 
them, but they are the seniors or the 
kind who want to sit and watch oth 
er people do the work. Why can't we 
have a decent showing at one of these 

And now that I have said my very 
earnest little say, let's cool off and go 
to the plays that are in progress or 
are trying to get that way. I seem to 
have made a mistake last week when 
I said that Ellen Ruppersberger and 
Margaret Bordwell were going to give 
their plays at the next Wig and Buc- 
kle meeting. Instead Jeannette Kal- 
bach is going to try to give her play, 
"The Truth About Women," which 
was reviewed several issues ago. 

The Delphian and Kalozetean Lit- 
erary Societies have selected for their 
anniversary play one of the recent 
Broadway successes, Sutton Vane's 
"Outward Bound." This is very dif- 
ferent from anything that has been 
presented here in the memory of the 
present student generation. It con- 
cerns a mysterious voyage to an un- 
known port. The passengers, none of 
which can remember their destination, 
find out that there is no crew on this 
boat except a lone bar-tender. This 
rather queer person has a strange gift 
of prophecy. Then the awful truth 
dawns on them— all of them are go- 
ing to the Other Shore. From then 
the play progresses rapidly and quite 
a bit of philosophy is expounded. The 
conclusion is unexpected but satisfac- 
tory. . . . This play presents great 
possibilities for acting, the parts in- 
clude a very sophisticated woman, a 
charlady from London, a young cou- 
ple very much in love, a waywar^ 
minister, the bar-tender, and seve 
other very good character parts. • • ' 
The two societies made a wise cho^ 
when they selected this play f° r the ^ 
annual production. RehearsalS wlien 
start immediately, and this play, 
worked up, should be an unprece e 
ed success from the standpoint o

franklin and Marshall practically 
i nched the Eastern Pennsylvania 
Hegiate Basketball League title for 
second consecutive year, when 
overpowered a scrappy Lebanon 
Valley five, riding the crest of a two 


winning streak, 61-40. 

The Diplomats experienced little 
difficulty with the Annville boys in 
laving their best game of the season. 
Everything they threw in the general 
direction of the basket seemed to be 
attracted by some magnetic force 
dragging it through the hoop. The 
Valley on the other hand presented 
none of the spirit and team work that 
had been so evident in its two pre- 
ceding games. Their defense was rag- 
ged and failed to function with the 
smooth-moving shift so essential to 
successfully bottle up the opposition's 

The home team ran up an 8-0 lead 
early in the game as the team of 
Wagner, Emerson, De Bold, Hams- 
cher, and Fox, ran wild tossing shots 
hither and yon and still getting credit 
for them. The Blue and White finally 
broke into the scoring column to tally 
three markers in the wild first quar- 
ter and trailed 10-3 at the end of the 
initial stanza. 

The brief respite between periods 
did nothing to stop the fierce attack 
by the sons of Ben and Jim and the 
lads kept on piling up a lead. Wag- 
ner, De Bold, and Emerson led the 
assault on the hapless Valleyites who 
broke through to tally six points, 
while F. and M. garnered eighteen 
counters to hold a 28-9 advantage at 
the intermission. 

Lebanon Valley showed a little more 
life at the start of the second half 
and managed to match shots with the 
Diplomats during a part of the third 
period. F. and M. spurted toward the 
end to gain an 18-13 advantage in a 
wild scoring spree: during the past 
intermission quarter, to hold a 46-22 
lead going into the final stanza. 

Going into the home stretch, Coach 
Barr put in the remainder of his 
team which did not fall down on the 
]°b although they were outscored 
18 -!5 by the Annvillids who finally 
br °ught the total figures to 61-40 in 
*e Diplomat's favor at the gun. 

For the Valley, Steve Kubisen was 
he most prolific scorer, tallying 
WeIv e points in addition to playing 
* fine floor game. His plucky play

Eighth Lontest 

F. & M. Lead 19-16 

The Blue and White frosh failed to 
break its extended losing last week 
by dropping its eighth straight con- 
test to the F. and M. Frosh 29-25, 
Tom Floyd's boys built up a 13-6 ad- 
vantage in the first half by outstand- 
ing work on the part of Bob Buyer 
and Ryan these two lads accounted 
for nearly all of the victor's points 
in the first two quarters. 

Jerry Frock's team went to work 
to outscore the F. and M. outfit 19-16 
in the last two periods but was unable 
to overcome the 7 point lead gained 
by the winners in the first half. Bach- 
man, Buyer, and Ryan teamed up to 
gain 26 of F. and M.'s 29 counters 
while Dorazio and Charlie Miller each 
tallied 7 points in upholding the Val- 
ley end of the scoring business. 

Frosh Down Albright 

Jerry Frock's yearling quintet broke 
its eight game losing streak when 
ending the current basketball sched- 
ule by defeating the Albright Frosh 
Squad 38-28 last evening in the Leb- 
anon High School Gynasium in the 
preliminary contest to the varsity 
game. The Blue and White outfit 
avenged a defeat suffered earlier in 
the season at the hands of the Lion 
Cubs of the Reading institution. 

The first quarter saw both teams 
playing in a lethargic fashion. Neith- 
er aggregation seemed able to break 
the ice in the first few minutes and 
failed to take advantage of several 
excellent scoring opportunities. The 
Valley lead the visitors 4-3 as the

Juniors in Second Place 

The league-leading Sophomore ag- 
gregation in the Day Students league 
failed to increase its lead over the oth- 
er class teams, but maintained its two 
game advantage by downing an ag- 
gressive Frosh outfit 33-24 in a hard 
fought contest. In the other game the 
Juniors won in a leisurely fashion by 
defeating the Seniors 69-35. 

The Sophs started in their usual 
manner, but were held to a 6-2 lead at 
quarter. The second year men main- 
tained the four-point lead and finished 
the half out in front 16-12. The Frosh 
tied the score at 16 all, but dropped 
behind 26-18 by the start of the final 
period. The Sophs were extended in 
the last canto in keeping ahead. En- 
gle assumed a new role in starring 
for the winner by gaining 17 points 
and Unger showed up best for the 
vanquished by dropping 11 counters 
through the hoop. 

The Jrs. started slowly in outscor- 
ing Rakow and Co. 12-8 in the first 
chukker. The victors found the range 
in the next quarter and led 29-17 at 
intermission. The Juniors went 'way 
ahead in the third canto by assuming 
a 51-23 lead going into the last pe- 
riod. The winners still outscored their 
opponents in the final quarter with a 
host of subs in the game. Shay amass- 
ed a total of 44 points with first-class 
passing assistance from Wornas and 
Boltz. The latter threw in 11 points 
from back court, while Rakow stood

Looking ahead at the Girls Sport 
Schedule, the date March 15 looms 
up as the nearest important date, at 
which time the disciples of Diana will 
take up arms and go to Lancaster to 
hunt the bulls eyes of the targets at 
the Shenk Archery Range. For that 
Saturday, Mr. Shenk has invited to 
his range the girls' archery teams 
from Millersville and Shippensburg 
State Teachers Colleges, Wilson Col- 
lege, and our own institution. This 
will mark the first opportunity to 
shoot since weather conditions pre- 
vented outdoor practice last fall. The 
fact that the other schools in the com- 
petition are equipped with indoor 
ranges seems to indicate that the Blue 
and White girls may have uphill 
work — here's wishing them luck! 

The week following the Archery 
Meet, Saturday March 22, is the date 
set for a Girls Sport Day here on 
our own campus. Plans for that event 
are as yet tentative, but they will be 
published in the next issue of La Vie. 

Miss Henderson has just announc- 
ed that Lebanon Valley College re- 
ceived an invitation to Penn State 
College to attend a Sports Week End 
on April 26 and 27. There will be 
competition in tennis, badminton, 
archery, bowling, swimming and golf. 
Representatives will be sent from Leb- 
anon Valley to compete in the three 
former sports. Selection of individ- 
uals to be sent will be made accord- 
ing to ability; tournaments will be 
run, and the winners are to be re- 
warded with the Penn State trip — 
get those muscles in trim, gals! 

Now that we've got an idea of what 
is going to happen, let's take a retro- 
spective glance. Last Thursday eve- 
ning the West Hall Lassies were 
downed to the tune of — ■ to — ■, at 
the hands of the strong Women Day 
Students team. Klopp just couldn't 
miss the hoop, running up the score 
for the winners, while Seavers flipped 
up a majority of the losers' markers. 

A birds' eye view of the girls' lea- 
gue reveals this: North Hall retains 
a cellar position after forfeiting some 
games because of failure of a team to 
appear; West Hall, in third rank de- 
serves honorable mention for battling 
so valiantly with the odds against 
them. South Hall team and the Day 
Students are deadlocked for top rung 
in the ladder, neither team having lost 
a game. Monday at 4:30 they will 
meet to fight it out to the bitter end. 


Handball Champ 

Downed Rakow in Hard 
Fought Contest 

After four weeks of spirited play, 
a new champ was crowned early this 
week as Ralph Shay defeated Alex 
Rakow in a hard fought and bitterly 
contested match 21-17 and 21-5 to win 
the current Handball Tournament 
sponsored by the Day Student Con- 
gress. Rakow proved the dark-horse 
of the tourney by overcoming Joe 
Gittlen and John Wise in advancing 
to the finals while Shay had little 
difficulty in qualifying to meet Rakow 
for the championship. 

Rakow received a bye in the first 
round, defeated Snyder 9-21, 21-13, 
21-6, downed Gittlen 21-3 and 21-15 
and finally upset the apple-cart by 
brilliantly sinking Wise who had 
cut short Bob Breen's attempt to re- 
peat his victory of last year, 21-19 
and 21-10. On the other hand Shay 
breezed by his opponents by crushing 
Zimmerman 21-3, 21-3, slashing to 
victory over Derick 21-3, 21-0, win- 
ning out over Morey 21-3, 21-7, and 
dropping Patschke by the wayside 
21-9, and 21-5 in his drive for the 

Rakow, in forcing Shay to the limit, 
took more points from the champ than 
any of the latter's opponents in the 
play-offs. Shay built up a lead of 
17-8 in the first game but Rakow re- 
taliated by coming up 17-14. The 
champ had difficulty in going out as 
Rakow tenatiously stuck to his guns 
and refused to be licked. 

In the second game Rakow wilted 
completely before the withering fire 
of Shay as the latter set a torrid pace 
after leading 12-4 in piling up point 
after point. Rakow took one point be- 
fore the new champ gained his 21 
points in two opportunities at service. 
Credit must be acorded Rakow for 
his gameness and courage as he at- 
tempted to weather the storm without

The game see-sawed back and forth 
in the second period as first one team 
and then the other held the advan- 
tage. The Albright team gained the 
upper hand to lead 13-12 at half- 

A free-scoring contest developed 
after intermission as Boltz of the 
visitors swished the net several times 
and Newman and Miller countered for 
L. V. The Dutchmen surged ahead to 
a 22-19 advantage as the last chukker 

The Valley suddenly produced a 
brilliant passing game that completely 
baffled the opponents and netted the 
Frockmen several baskets and in- 
creased their lead to 32-24. Newman 
threw several balls into the bucket 
on assists from Miller and Dorazio. 
Kern and Dorazio also gained a few 
points apiece as their portion of the 
game. Miller dumped a foul with a 
minute to go and Newman dropped 
another in the hoop as the ball game 

Blue & White Girls 
Downed By E'town 

Last Wednesday evening the girls' 
Honor Team waged the most success- 
ful battle in the history of its com- 
petition with the Elizabethtown Col- 
lege women. The final score of the 
game which took place on L. V. Cam- 
pus was 16-13, the Blue and White 
girls J trailing h/y a heart-breaking 
margin. Ginny Bernhardt, South 

As the curtain was rung down on 
the L. V. C. basketball season, Coach 
Intrieri's men suffered a humiliating 
defeat at the hands of their tradition- 
al rivals, Albright, by the overwhelm- 
ing score 63-45. 

The attracting feature of the tus- 
sle was the anticipated duel between 
high-scorers Mease and Shollenberger. 
Shollenberger, with two more games 
to play, must tally only nine points 
to tie Captain Mease. Mease, on the 
other hand, has finished his season 
with the grand total 147 points, an 
average of better than twelve points 
a game. 

Shollenberger gained seven points 
on Mease as he amassed the total of 
23 points, eleven of which came in 
the final chapter. Mease garnered 16 
counters to run his total up, but the 
close guarding of Rhoads and the 
failure of some shots to drop, kept 
his total down. 

The game was a rough affair, both 
teams battling away desperately. The 
roughness was enhanced when the 
referees attempted to curb the ten- 
dencies of the players, but rather in- 
furiated the players so that greater 
fouling was incurred. 

In addition to the players becoming 
rather heated, the spectators went in 
for a bit of agitation themselves, some 
of the boys displaying their poor 
sportsmanship by tossing peanuts at 
the officials. 

The game started slow with Captain 
Mease breaking the ice with a nice 
left-handed poke. Once the scoreboard 
registered the first two points the 
boys went wild scoring madly, forcing 
the scorekeepers to get out their add- 
ing machines. The fine work of Kubi- 
sen kept the Valley in the ball game 
the first quarter. His floor work and 
field goal tossing was the Valley's 
greatest asset. Mease was well tied 
up, but Schillo managed to break a- 
way for a couple scores. Albright 
held the upper hand at quarter time 
by a 15-12 score. 

The Dutchmen battled vainly in the 
second quarter to close the gap, but 
could not check the one man attack 
of Dick Shollenberger who tallied six 
foul shots in the first half. When the 
whistle blew ending the initial twenty 
minutes play, the Lions had gained 
a point and as a result led 27-23. 

The third period saw both teams 
tally the same number of points. 
Mease developed a hot hand to run 
up the Valley score, while Petrucka 
was the big gun for the Cherry and 
White. At the start of the final stanza, 
Albright led 38-34. 

The Lions went wild in the final 
quarter to score 25 points, Shollen- 
berger tallying 11 of them. The Valley 
could only garner eleven. As the horn 
buzzed the final score read 63-45 in 
favor of Albright. 

For the Valley, it was Mease, Schil- 
lo, and Kubisen that kept the ball 
game alive, the three of them tallying 
38 points. 

Hall's scoring menace, racked up sev- 
er points while Bobby Herr, another 
whiz from South, contributed the 
ether six points. 

The guard section did outstanding 
work throughout the game, holding the 
opposition pointless in the third quar- 
ter. Pete Geyer's determined boast 
that she would hold Strite, the pride 
of E-town, to a low score, was not a 
vain one. In the final reckoning 
Strife's 30-point average was cut 
down to a measly six. Nice work, 

Then we must not) forget the party 
after the game: orchids to Carpy 
Rutherford and Lucie Espenshade for 
the quite, quite successful hostess act 
they staged in Delphian Hall. A party 
with a theme so patriotic that even 
the spirit of rivalry was lost in good 
fellowship is really deserving of hon- 
orable mention.

"Our Town" As 
Harrisburg Does It 

(Continued from Page 1) 

where Emily Webb and George Gibbs 
reached the socially-recognized cul- 
mination of the second of the three 
transitory stages of life expressed in 
the three acts of the play — life, love 
and death. 

Our Town can be grasped best by 
those who have had experiences with 
life in a small town and those who 
recognize the natural tendencies of 
life — "to live, to love, and to die." 
Grover's Corners was simplicity it- 
self. It was an informal place. It was 
typically American. It had its prom- 
inent people, its drunkard, its con- 
stable, its drugstore, its young people, 
and its gossips. Life followed a simple 
pattern. People lived with nature, and 
only ignorance of the methods em- 
ployed by nature to produce the cycle 
of life robbed men of the peace and 
content they were to enjoy when they 
entered their eternal rest. Men knew 
and trusted one another — until the 
automobile and the burgler entered 
Grover's Corners. Then people locked 
their doors at night, and dogs no 
longer slept undisturbed in the middle 
of main street. Despite the encroach- 
ments upon civic life by these "evils 
of advancing civilization," life in 
Grover's Corners followed its estab- 
lished pattern. New lives were bom 
to replace those which passed out of 
mortal existence, and love was always 
on hand to bring youth together "two 
by two." 

To throw individual cabbages and 
bouquets would be a tremendous un- 
dertaking. There were those who de- 
served overripen fruit, but there were 
more who needed orchids. 

The Harrisburg Community Thea- 
tre celebrated its fifteenth birthday 
by producing "Our Town." In sixteen 
seasons it has produced ninety-one 
plays, and each one plausibly. An 
amateur group of actors, the Harris- 
burg Community Theatre opens its 
doors to all who wish to become a part 
of them. They are equally accommo- 
dating toward those who wish to wit- 
ness them\in action off stage. The 
Wig and Buckle Club was invited to 
attend any play rehearsal they choose 
or visit the "workshop" at any time. 
The Harrisburg Community Theatre 
is a result of the forsight of an alert 
community interested in the develop- 
ment of its cultural facilities. 

Following this remarkable repast, 
the company of Wig and Buckle sup- 
porters turned their attention to a 
brief period of dancing and feasting 
at the Airport Milk Bar. 

Those making the trip were: Anna 
Mae Bomberger, Mary Louise Clark, 
Dorothea Donough, Betty Foster, 
Martha Jane Koontz, Marian Kreider, 
Feme Poet, Ellen Ruppersberger, 
Betty Shillot, Donald Bartley, Joe 
Carr, Marlin Espenshade, John Hamp- 
ton, Robert Mandle, Richard Owen, 
Earl Reber, David Shaner, Frank 
Shenk, Dennis Sherk, Bruce Souders, 
and Dr. Struble.

Students Increase 
Missionary Fund 

Last week there appeared two 
articles in La Vie Collegienne which 
referred to the Student World Friend- 
ship Project. "Just what is this pro- 
ject?" may be a question in the minds 
of many. The Student World Friend- 
ship Project is a missionary project 
in which the students of five United 
Brethren Colleges and Bonebrake 
Seminary unite to support a student 
missionary in the foreign field. The 
project began in 1927 when students 
of Lebanon Valley, Otterbein* and 
Indiana Central Colleges contributed 
a fund for the support of Albert 
Academy, a boy's school located at 
Freetown, West Africa. Incidently, 
Solomon Caulker, a member of the 
senior class, is a graduate of Albert 
Academy. This experiment succeeded 
so well that three years later the stu- 
dents decided to change the plan and 
raise a fund large enough to support 
a student representative to teach for 
a term of two years in one of the mis- 
sion schools in West Africa.

Dr. Roush Pays 
Visit To Lebanon 
Valley campus 

Lebanon Valley College welcomed to 
its campus on Monday, Dr. Walter 
Edwin Roush, professor of Old Testa- 
ment language and interpretation at 
Bonebrake Theological Seminary. The 
official purpose behind his visit here 
was to interview the ministerial stu- 
dents with regard to their coming to 
the seminary after graduation. 

Dr. Roush presented a brief talk to 
the students at Chapel service on the 
subject "A Young Man's Conviction." 
The scripture which formed the; basis 
for his discourse was taken from the 
book of Jeremiah. 

The Y. M. C. A., and the Y. W. C. A., 
combined with the Life Work Re- 
cruits to make his stay here as pleas- 
ant as possible. During the day, the 
ministerial students were given the 
opportunity to meet Dr. Roush and to 
discuss their plans for attending Bone- 
brake Theological Seminary. The stu- 
dents who took advantage of the op- 
portunity expresed their approval 
of the very cordial and sympathetic 
attitude on the part of Dr. Roush to- 
ward their personal problems. 

In the evening a banquet was held 
for all members of the Y cabinets and 
the Life Work Recruits, in the small 
dining hall. Mr. Charles Miller, pres- 
ident of the Life Work Recruits, acted 
as chairman in the evening. He called 
upon Dr. Shettel to ask the blessing 
before the group partook of the even-

Academy Secretary 


Office Taken By 
Faculty Member 

It has been learned by a sleeping- 
reporter that at a joint meeting of 
some fifty scientific organizations in 
Philadelphia this past Christmas va- 
cation period, one of our own faculty 
members was elected to a responsible 
office of national honor. It was at the 
meeting of the various state academ- 
ies of science that Dr. Light, present 
Secretary-Treasurer of the Pennsyl- 
vania Academy, was elected for a 
four year term to serve as Secretary 
of the Academy Conference which in- 
cludes all the state academies thru- 
out the country. Realizing the splen- 
did job that Dr. Light has done in his 
own academy, we can be assured that 
his national task will be most success- 
ful. Dr. Light is responsible for the 
program at the annual meeting which 
will be held in Dallas, Texas, at the 
end of the year. 

Tea For Frosh 
Held By Lynches 

Freshmen were entertained at a 
tea at the home of President and Mrs. 
Lynch on Wednesday afternoon, 
March 12. Mrs. A. H. M. Stonecipher 
and Mrs. Wm. Ullery were at the tea 
table and Mrs. Lynch was aided in 
serving also by Mildred Cross, Viola 
Snell, Phoebe Geyer, and Fredericka 
Laucks. Decorations for the affair 
were green and white. 

Members of the Junior class pre- 
sented a musical program consisting 
of a violin solo by George Moore, so- 
prano solo by Marguerite Martin, and 
cornet solo by Herbert Curry. Ac- 
companists were Albert Morrison, 
Margaret Cox, and Gladys Brown. 

Kalos Set Plans For 

Plans for the Kalozetean Literary 
Society's Anniversary dinner-dance, 
on March 29, have been completed in 
respect to the place and orchestra 
with the chosing of Chet Lincoln's 
orchestra to play at the Hotel Abra- 
ham Lincoln in Reading. 

The society has broken the tradi- 
tion of the last few years by taking 
the dance elsewhere than the Hotel 
Hershey. The Abraham Lincoln, how- 
ever, is not untried, for both the Cli- 
os and Delphians held their celebra- 
tions there this year. The orchestra 
has also proven its ability at former 
campus dances. 

Dr. Derickson 
Makes Address 
To L. V. Alumni 

Dr. Samuel H. Derickson, Professor 
of Biological Science at Lebanon Val- 
ley College was the guest speaker of 
the Dauphin County Club of Lebanon 
Valley College, an alumni organiza- 
tion, at their reorganization meeting 
held Thursday, March 6, in the Coco 
Cola Building, Harrisburg. Also pres- 
ent were Mr. Jerome W. Frock, Dir- 
ector of Physical Education for Men 
and Coach at Lebanon Valley College 
and Mr. Marino Intrieri, Assistant 

Following the showing of motion 
pictures centering around Lebanon 
Valley College's May Day exercises 
of last year and the football program 
(Coach Frock explained the latter 
picture) , Dr. Derickson addressed his 
audience on the subject "Are they 
still making good shoes in Annville?" 
or "Is Lebanon Valley College turning 
out Alumni as good as, or better than 
in our day?" 

At this meeting of the Dauphin 
County Club which was presided over 
by Mr. Edward E. Knauss, president 
of the organization and at present a 
faculty member of William Penn High 
School, Harrisburg, plans were laid 
for an annual meeting. This meeting 
is to be held in the Hershey Commun- 
ity Dining Room. Mr. Carl Snavely, 
Alumnus of Lebanon Valley College 
and Coach of football at Cornell will 
be the guest of the evening. 

W- and B. Program 
Presents Plays At 
March Meeting 

On Tuesday evening, March 18, the 
Wig and Buckle Club will meet at 
8:45 in Engle Hall. The program for 
meeting will feature two one-act 

The first, entitled The Truth About 
Women by Sidney, is being directed 
by Jeannette Kalbach. The play stars 
Maurie Erdman and introduces some 
new personalities to the L. V. C. 

The other play on the program, 
Archibald MacLeish's Aid Raid, will 
be produced under the direction of 
Martha Jane Koontz. This play is a 
type new to Lebanon Valley audi- 
ences ; it was written less than a year 
ago, especially for radio. It has since 
been adapted to the stage as a one- 
act play. For the persons interested 
in the backstage technique of produc- 
tion, this play should be on the "must 
see" list, as the sound and lighting 
effects are of maximum importance. 
This cast, too, will include individuals 
previously unseen on the campus 

Ink ?pots Held March Meeting 

Green Blotter members gathered at 
the home of Dr. and Mrs. Struble on 
Tuesday evening, March 11. Several 
original manuscripts were read by ink 
spots, and work on the club's play was

Pa. Academy of 
Science Offers 
Student Membership 

The students of Lebanon Valley 
College, especially those enrolled in 
the Biological and Science depart- 
ments, are invited to join the Penn- 
sylvania Academy of Science. Stu- 
dent dues for those under 23 years of 
age are $1.00 per year. Those apply- 
ing for membership shall see Dr. 
Light or a student member of the 

On the Lebanon Valley campus, fac- 
ulty members of this organization now 
include Dr. C. A. Lynch, Dr. A. 
Black, Prof. S. O. Grimm, Dr. S. H. 
Derickson, one of the founders and 
past presidents, and Dr. V. E. Light, 
present Secretary-Treasurer. Student 
members include Marlin Espenshade, 
Robert Nichols, and Earl Reber, all 
of whom may be seen for further in- 

The purpose of this organization is 
to serve the state of Pennsylvania in 
the same manner in which other sci- 
entific societies serve the metropolitan 
areas of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. 
The Academy is affiliated with the 
American Association for the Ad- 
vancement of Science and, therefore, 
to considerable extent does for Penn- 
sylvania what the mother society does 
for the entire country. 

In the last circular of information 
published by the Pennsylvania Acad- 
emy of Science, December, 1940, the 
following ideas concerning the pur- 
poses and work of the organization 
were stated: "The objects of this 
Academy shall be scientific research 
and the diffusion of knowledge con- 
cerning the various departments of 
science; to promote intercourse be- 
tween those engaged in scientific

Class Will See 
"Twelfth Night 

Dr. Paul A. Wallace and twenty 
members of his Shakespeare class 
have made plans to see the current 
production of "Twelfth Night" when 
it is played at the Ford Theatre in 
Baltimore. The presentation given 
with Helen Hayes and Maurice Evans 
is the one which opened in the fall in 
Philadelphia and has just left Broad- 
way for its tour. 

Six of the group have made ar- 
rangements to see the Wednesday ma- 
tinee, while the remaining theatre- 
goers will attend the Saturday mati- 
nee. In charge of the tickets and

Selective Service Act and 
The College Student 

Perhaps the chief question of dis- 
cussion and thought among college 
students is the problem of operation 
of the selective service act and its 
effect upon college students. A speech 
on the subject was recently delivered 
at the University of Michigan by Col- 
onel William H. Draper, Jr. We have 
been asked to bring this message to 
the attention of Lebanon Valley stu- 
dents. To meet this request, several 
passages are quoted in this column 

"The Selective Service Act became 
law on September 16 last — now nearly 
six months ago. It was America's 
reply to Hitler's unprovoked invasion 
of Luxembourg, Belgium, and Holland 
and to the fall of France. The phony 
war had become very real. Most of 
Europe was already under the heel of 
the dictator, and for the first time 
America realized its own potential 
danger. National defense unified the 
country. America decided it must be 
strong on the sea, in the air, and on 
the land. Ninety percent of our people, 
a recent Gallup poll indicates, now 
favor the Selective Service Law. Huge 
appropriations for our Army and 
Navy has passed almost unanimously. 

"Our Army has grown from 200,000 
to nearly a million. By July 1 it will 
be a million and a half. A defense 
program of this size and affecting this 
large number of our young men nec- 
essarily makes its impact in one way 
or another on nearly everyone in the 
country. As college students you are 
primarily interested in its effect on 
the several hundred thousand young 
men now attending our colleges and 
universities. The first call for men 
from the 6,000 local selective service 
boards came in November after the 
start of the college year. Congress had 
provided, therefore, for the deferment 
of those attending recognized educa- 
tional institutions until the close of 
the college year next June. This means 
that up to the present time and for 
several months to come the Selective 
Service Law is leaving the college 
campus untouched, except as individ- 
ual college students may volunteer for 
the Army or the Navy. 

"The underlying principle of Select- 
ive Service is the procurement of man- 
power for our land and naval forces 
in the democratic manner — by calling 
( ii all to serve, the rich and the poor, 
the classes and the masses. This was 
specifically provided in prohibiting any 
deferments by occupational groups or 

"Those with the greater opportunity 
must also assume the greater respon- 
sibilities. The nation's leaders of to- 
morrow are the students in our col- 
leges today."

Smokie s Place 

Smokie snapped out of a doze as he heard the motor of a Mac truck 
chug to a stop outside his all-night lunch room. The hands of the fly-speck- 
ed clock pointed to three-twenty; the sleepy voice of the WIP announcer 
mentioned the fact that he was going to play a recording of "There I Go"; 
the trucker entered a little groggily. 

"Evenin', mister," Smokie offered. He was a little disappointed for he 
had hoped it would be one of the regulars. 

"Hamburger with everything, and coffee, black," the stranger ordered. 

Smokie sized him up carefully in the steamy mirror as he fried the ham- 
burger and poured the coffee. This guy was shot. Face haggard, eyes 
bloodshot, cap tattered, cheap dirty jacket. Didn't much look like he wanted 
to talk, but Smokie was too great a conversationalist to let that stop him. 

"Bin drivin' far?" 

"From Pittsburgh. This is Annville isn't it?" 

That was the only opening Smokie needed. 'Yea, nice little college town. 
Wouldn't be any other place in the world. Why I've had this place fifteen 
years, and I've seen those college kids come in here day and night till 1 
know all about 'em. The girls come in in the afternoon and tell me all about 
their heart throbs; then the boys come in with the girls in the evening and 
I see their heart throbs; later, after the girls go in, the heart throbs come 
back for a couple of barbecues and tell me all about the girls. They're great 
kids, mister, I hear some queer stories." 

The driver put down his cup and lit a cigarette. 

" 'Nother cup of java, buddie?" Smokie was afraid to lose his audience 
now that he was getting warmed up. 

A bit of a smile flashed across the man's face as he handed Smokie his 
cup. "O. K. Fill 'er up." 

"Well, as I was sayin'," Smokie went on, somewhat reassured, "I hear- 
some funny stories. Some sad ones too. Look here — " 

He produced a smudged snapshot from under the counter. "D'ya know 
who this is?" 

He pointed to one of the two figures on the picture. "Let me see," the 
driver said, picking it up. His mouth worked nervously. Smokie had pointed 
to a young girl, who was smiling adoringly at the fellow in football uni- 
form who towered above her. Across the picture was written, "Smokie 
from Jean and Jerry, 1929." 

"No, I guess I can't place her," the truck driver answered as Smokie 
filled his cup once more. 

"Well, that's Lorina. You've heard of her. Big musical comedy star, hit 
of Broadway, divorced a couple of times. Jean Perry she was then, and plen- 
ty in love with Jerry Stern. Fact is, I never saw two kids that were so 
meant for each other. Jerry was the biggest football man we ever had, 
swell fellow, good marks, and a good-looker too. They were in here all the 
time tellin' me how Jerry was goin' to get a job, and Jean was goin' to 
dramatic school while he got on his feet. They had it all figured out how 
they were goin' to get married in a year and live in a white house with 
green shutters." 

The driver began to tear his paper napkin nervously. "Better get on with 
this," Smokie thought. "He's gettin' ants." 

"Jerry got his job, alright. Good one too, and Jean went on with her 
singin' and dancin' in New York. That was the summer of twenty-nine, and 
in the fall came the crash, remember? Guess everything must of hit Jerry 
at one time. First the crash, then the same day that he lost his job he got 
a letter from Jean sayin' she was goin' to marry some big producer. Don't 
know much what happened to Jerry after that. Someone said he was 
kickin' around on a tramp steamer between here and Costa Rica. But Jean, 
that girl was on her way up. She changed her name and hit the lights. Kinda 
thought I'd like to see her last year, so I went to New York and saw her 
new show. She was good, I'll give her that, but somehow I didn't think 
I should go back and see her like I'd planned. Has her hair dyed, sorta red 

and she looks well, I didn't think I'd be talking to Jean." 

Smokie stopped and waited for a comment to his story, but the stranger 

aye Whisp 


Well, once again ou r camp Us , 
become the center of much d - 
activity. There are rehearsal^' 
three plays, all being held at on ^ 
these three, perhaps the most 
ious undertaking is the Halo-Del^ 
play, "Outward Bound." Ther n 
still three weeks remaining Unti j are 
production date, so this year it ^ 
be a "quickie." For a while there ^ 
considerable discussion as to wh ^ % 
this play could be given as one f tT 
leads. Carolyn Kissinger, decided 
become Mrs. Richard Powers t0 
there was a good bit of trouble t^ 
ing to get anyone to take her 
We are very glad to be able to ^ 
"Best wishes" to any of our frienT 
but we will miss Carolyn very m !' 
in our future productions. Marth 
Wilt has been selected to take her 
place, and we are sure that Miss Wilt 
will prove herself quite worthy f th e 

The two other plays are the one-act 
"jobs" which are to be presented at 
the Wig and Buckle meeting next 
Tuesday. The date for their produc 
tion is, consequently, the date for the 
club meeting, because of the difficul- 
ty experienced in casting these two 
plays. The delay will give them a lit- 
tic more time to get their vehicles in 

shape Jo Hammond and Wayne 

Mowry who are in both plays are hav- 
ing trouble trying to be in two places 
at once, but we always say that there 
is nothing like a liberal education. 
. . . . We'd like to take time out to 
say right here and now that by far 
the most cooperative person that we 
have run across is none other than 
Carroll "Tommy" Reed. When asked 
if he would take part in the play— 
"The Truth About Women," he al- 
most caused the death by surprise of 
Jeannette when he promptly answer- 
ed, "Sure." .... In the other play, 
"Air Raid," the love interest centers 
about the two Stansfields, Ed and Jen. 
And it is just as well since Ed was 
heard to say, "Gee, I'd feel funny do- 
ing this with anyone but my sister." 

But we have it from a good 

source that both plays are well under 
way and they will definitely be pro- 
duced at the meeting on Tuesday eve- 

Even the profs are co-operating 
with this project. The advanced com- 
position class has to write a one-act 
play for Friday. We are about to see 
what the campus offers in the way 
of play writers. We have heard that 
the one which Ellen is writing is very 
good. Maybe we will find out that she 
is a writer as well as an actress. 

And now as a final plea we ask 
you, and You, and YOU to come out 
to the Wig and Buckle meeting °" 

Tuesday to see the two plays 


have been whipped up for your.

putchmen Quintet Closes Mediocre 
Season; Five Wins 

Mease Leads Scoring With 193 Points 
Schillo Second With 132 Counters 

The Lebanon Valley College varsity 
•jitet completed a rather mediocre 
qU1 on l ast Wednesday night when 
S6 v bowed before their arch rivals 
1 Albright Lions. That loss marked 

tenth, while they were able to

Average of games won. Perhaps a 
little review of the season's games 
^g^t be of interest to those that 
failed to attend the varsity battles. 

Dutchmen started in grand 
style when they took a hard fighting 
jloravian team into camp 39-33 on 
|jie Lebanon High School arena. Their 
was short-lived when an un- 


derdog Ursinus five eked out a 28-26 
victory in the final six seconds of the 
game. The affair was marred by pug- 
ilistic tendencies of spectators and 
players. F. and M. then handed the 
Valley another setback, 33-25 in a 
closely played contest, the Blue and 
White second league defeat. 

Journeying to Lewisburg, the Val- 
ley attempted to overcome its losing 
streak, but instead were further hu- 
miliated when the Bisons bounced the 
Dutchmen hard by a 59-46 score. Con- 
tinuing their tour the Blue and White 
tackled the Muhlenberg Mules at A1- 
lentown, but success was not to be 
theirs as they fell beneath the thunder- 
ing hoofs of Doggie Julian's lads, 
62-47. The Valley streak was snapped 
at last when the Red Devils of Carl- 
isle bowed down to the tune of 47-37. 

The winning streak went to two 
straight when G-burg was defeated 
in its own gymnasium, the fourth 
time in the history of the school, 
37-31. Unfortunately the luck didn't 
last because at Reading, Albright com- 
pletely annihilated Lebanon Valley, 
68-48, in a wild scoring spree. Return- 
ing to the home grounds, the Valley 
had victory within its grasp, when 
a one-handed prayer shot by Schneid- 
er of Muhlenberg, wrenched away the 
victory and in its place put a 36-35 

Bucknell came to Lebanon and went 
aw ay again with a 45-28 win, after 
tn e Dutchmen had stood on even terms 
throughout the first half with the 
•sons. Moravian avenged into earlier 
rfeat, when they poured all their pet 

i nt ° the hoop to take the con " 
s , 57-44. Victory again came to the 

u tchmen, when they assumed an 

lead on the Bullets from the 

iefield area, and then maintained 

at lead to coast to a 31-28 win, their 

b ^°nd at the expense of the Gettys-

with 92 markers. The guards found 
little time for scoring, although Staley 
led with 41 points. Smith garnered 36 
markers, while Matala pushed through 
29 points. Youse, who suffered a 
broken arm in the F. and M. game 
early in the season had six points. 

Interesting to note is that Frank 
Kuhn, who as a sophomore was one 
of the high scorers of the team, had 
only 18 points. Frank will be remem-

In spite of the wintry blasts, spring 
sports enthusiasts are beginning to 
warm up. On Saturday the women's 
archery team will compete with the 
teams from Millersville, Shippensburg, 
and Linden Hall at the Shenk Arch- 
ery Range in Lancaster. This event 
will mark the opening of the spring 
archery season. 

Tomorrow night, Friday, March 14, 
the basketball season winds up with 
the Honor Team meeting the Albright 
sextet on the latter's floor. Judging 
by the number of victories and close 
-cores rung up by this year's team 
in comparison to previous years, seems 
to indicate that this season has been 
one of the most successful. Only a 
victory on Friday evening will clinch 
the merit of the season's being called 
a COMPLETE success, so— Good luck, 

A hard, but fair-playing group of 
South Hall girls went into action on 
Monday last at 4:30 to break the win- 
ning streak of the Women Day Stud- 
ents. The almost perfect teamwork 
of Ginny Bernhard, Jane Stabley and 
Bobbie Herr served to rack up a score 
of 58 for the victors, while Mary 
Klopp and Mehaffey did some score- 
boosting for the vanquished. 

This game clinched the league title 
for South Hall, closely followed by 
the Day Students. West Hall girls 
rank third and North Hall holds cel- 
lar position. 

On Tuesday night the Honor Team 
met a scrappy Lebanon High team 
on the spacious floor at Lebanon. In 
spite of being unaccustomed to play- 
ing on such a large court, the Blue 
and White girls made a fine show- 
ing being downed by their opponents 
by a margin of 31 points, the score 
being 55 to 24.

Captain Ralph Mease was recently

Sophs Crowned 
Winners of D. S. L. 

8 Wins To Credit 

The aggressive Sophomore basket- 
ball team finally clinched the crown 
in the Day Student League by defeat- 
ing a game but luckless Junior quin- 
tet 38-37 when Heagy dropped the 
ball into the loop underhanded with 
15 seconds of play remaining after 
Boltz had put the Juniors ahead with 
a one-hand poke from mid-court. By 
downing the Juniors, the Sophs re- 
moved the only team which had a 
mathematical chance to beat them out 
for the championship. 

The second-year men led the Jun- 
iors 8-6 at the end of the first quarter 
but dropped behind by six points in 
the early part of the second canto. 
A rally by the Sophs netted 10 coun- 
ters to 2 for the losers to bring the 
score to 20-18 at half-time. 

The hamps maintained the pace in 
the next chukker to lead 29-25 going 
into the last period. The Juniors as- 
sumed the lead in a short time 35-33 
on a series of set shots and brilliant 
follow-up shots. The board read 37-36 
with a minute and a half to go follow- 
ing Boltz's toss. The defeated outfit 
attempted to freeze the ball and were 
successful until the Sophs took the 
ball off the bankboard, worked it 
downfloor to Heagy who performed 
the Frank Merriwell stunt for a 38-37 

The Jrs. broke through the high- 
ly lauded zone defense adopted by the 
Sophs in the last few contests but 
missed numerous peeps and set shots 
throughout the game. The Sophs on 
the other hand had trouble getting 
near the basket and had to fight for 
every point. Little and Shay gained 
12 points apiece for the Sophs and 
Juniors respectively. 

In the other contest the Frosh final- 
ly halted a spurt by the Seniors in the 
last half to win 34-27 and earn a tie 
with the Juniors for second place in 
the league. The first year men led 
8-2 at quarter and 24-9 at intermis- 
sion. Rakow and Gingrich teamed up 
to outscore the victors 11-8 and 7-2 
in the last two periods. The Frosh 
appeared to have difficulty in settling

Nine teams have entered the tourna- 
ment and play has already begun as 
several matches were completed this 

Shay, singles champ, has teamed

Zimmerman and Patschke bowed 
before Bamberger and DeHuff 21-23, 
23-21, 21-18 after rallying in the first 
game to win after trailing 20-12. Ali 
three games were closely played as 
neither team yielded a point without

publication such reports of investiga-

the aims and objects of the Academy." 

Each year the Academy publishes a 
volume of proceedings in which are 
recorded the transactions of the an- 
nual and field meetings and the pa- 
pers presented at the meetings. Pa- 
pers in practically every branch of 
science have been presented at one 
time or another. 

Two meetings are held each year. 
The annual or spring meeting is the 
main event of the year and is held 
on the Friday or Saturday preceding 
or following Easter. Generally the 
meeting is held at one of the colleges 
of the state. 

The summer field meeting is gener- 
ally held on the second Friday and 
Saturday of August. The place visit- 
ed is always one noted for its natural 
beauty or its botanical, geological or 
historial interest. Officials of the 
state departments of agriculture or 
professors from some of the various 
colleges and universities serve as 

The forthcoming meeting of this 
year will be held at Coatesville during 
the Easter holidays. The program and 
other information concerning this af- 
fair will be announced later.

Juniors Reveal 
Annual Prom Plans 

According to the most recent plans 
the Junior Prom will be held at the 
Hershey Park Ball Room on May 2 
with Alex Bartha's orchestra furnish- 
ing the music. 

The President of the Junior class 
has announced that Bartha's orches- 
tra was secured in compliance with 
the selections made at the junior class 
meeting on March 10. The band is 
known throughout the country for its 
five years stay on the Steel Pier at 
Atlantic City. With the securing of 
this "name" orchestra the class plans 
to follow last year's precedent in mak- 
ing the dance a large affair. 

Two New Names 
Among Lettermen 

At a meeting of the basketball team 
of 1941, the list of men earning their 
letters this season was released for 
publication. Only two new names ap- 
peared on the list of the seven eligi- 
ble wearers of the varsity L. 

The lettermen also decided that they 
would not elect a captain for next 
year, but rather have a captain ap- 
pointed before each game by Coach 

The following are the basketball let- 
termen: Captain Ralph Mease, Ed 
Schillo, Steve Kubisen, Donald Sta- 
ley, George Smith, Harry Matala, and 
Frank Kuhn.

messages from Dr. Clyde A. Lynch, 
Dr. Stonecipher, Dr. Wilt, and Dr. 

Dr. Roush presented the main 
speech of the evening. He confined 
his remarks to the standing of Bone- 
brake Theological Seminary. He ex- 
plained that in this country three dis- 
tinct types of seminaries exist. First, 
there are those schools independently 
owntd and operated, but which are 
not connected with any larger bodies 
or associations. Secondly, there are 
those schools who maintain a relation- 
ship with the American Association of 
Theological Schools. These, he went 
on to explain, are usually a higher 
grade school than those in the first 
category. Thirdly, there are certain 
select seminaries which are credible 
by the American Association of Theo- 
logical Schools. As Dr. Roush pointed 
out, this last classification is the high- 
est rank of theological schools, and all 
institutions so accredited maintain an 
absolute transfer agreement with each 
ether. This means that a student of 
one accredited school can transfer his

tion outfit.

Dr. Roush went on to point out the 
advantage of attending a seminary 
that was fully accredited. He explained 
that Bonebrake Theological Seminary 
has been fully accredited in this asso-

his remarks by emphasizing the im-

Survey Given of 
Graduates of Class 
of 1940 

Variety of fields 
place 55 Alumni 

Following a survey of the Class of 
1940, Dr. Edward M. Balsbaugh, Di- 
rector of the Placement Bureau, re- 
leases the following information re- 
garding the whereabouts of Lebanon 
Valley College's most recent gradu- 

Ninety-eight questionnaires were 
distributed to obtain this information, 
and fifty-five were returned. These 
reveal sixteen students pursuing post 
graduate work — 3 in medicine, 5 in 
ministry, 2 in chemistry, and 1 each 
in law, mathematics, history, psychol- 
ogy, meteorology and business admin- 

Eight graduates are serving in the 
United States Army, two as commis- 
sioned officers. Of the others, four 
are seeing service in the Aerial de- 
partment and two in the Artillery. 
The average monthly salary of this 
group is $138. 

Twenty-two men and nine women 
have found employment since gradu- 
ation. Of these twelve man and five 
women have found their employment 
in their individual major fields of 
study. The average monthly salary 
of this group is: males, $127.25 per 
month; and females, $102.60 per 

Though the returns were incom- 
plete, they are looked upon with pride 
°y the Placement Bureau. They indi- 
cate that jobs are still available for 
Lebanon Valley graduates, and that 
Lebanon Valley College's reputation 
as an accredited American College is 
recognized in at least sixteen cases 
where pupils are pursuing Post Grad- 
ate study.

Students affected by the provisions 
of the Selective Training and Service 
Act interview me frequently with ref- 
erence to their probable status after 
the close of the present academic year. 
The Editor of the LA VIE has ex- 
tended me the courtesy of our cam- 
pus newspaper to clarify the situation 
as it pertains to students in accredited 
institutions of higher learning. Col- 
lege presidents and educators gener- 
ally have been very much concerned 
with what will happen to students 
after July 1, 1941 particularly those 
students who are pursuing courses in 
professional, scientific, technical, or 
highly specialized fields of endeavor. 

Students have been deferred until 
July 1, 1941. At that time local boards 
will be under the necessity of re- 
classifying students now in Class I-D 
or I-E. When this reclassifiication oc- 
curs local boards will give full consid- 
eration to any evidence a student may 
furnish that would indicate the stu- 
dent's changed status since his initial 
classification. Local boards are under 
obligations to administer the Select- 
ive Training and Service Act in the 
spirit of Paragraph 352 of the Reg- 
ulations providing that a registrant 
shall be placed in Class II-A if the 
registrant is found by the local board 

by Clyde A. Lynch 

to be a necessary man in any indus- 
try, business employment, agricultur- 
al pursuit, governmental service, or 
any other service or endeavor or in 
training or preparation thereof, the 
maintenance of which is necessary to 
the national health, safety, or interest. 
Local boards shall give proper weight 
to this provision in dealing with the 
claims for occupational deferment of 
necessary men engaged in training or 
preparation for activities necessary 
to the national health, safety, or in- 

In harmony with the provisions of 
Paragraph 352 General Lewis B. Her- 
shey has issued the following mem- 
orandum to all State Directors per- 
taining to the classification of reg- 
istrants now in training or prepara- 
tion; and I convey the same informa- 
tion to our own students who may be 
interested : 

"Students or other registrants un- 
dergoing instruction may be deferred 
to Class II-A by the local board where 
the activity for which the registrant 
is in training or preparation is one 
essential to the national health, safety, 
or interest and the registrant is found 
to be a necessary man. The necessity 
of providing the required replace- 
ments for and additions to those men 

deemed by local boards as being en- 
gaged in essential activities should be 
considered by local boards in making 
their determination in individual cas- 
es. In determining whether or not a 
student is a necessary man within the 
provisions of Paragraph 351, the lo- 
cal board should give consideration to 
such factors as the length of time 
which the student has been pursuing 
the course in question, his relative 
progress and standing in such courses, 
and his relative chances for employ- 
men or placement in the activity for 
which he is preparing. This latter 
factor may be evidenced by contracts 
of employment or other reasonable 
assurance that the registrant will en- 
gage in an essential activity. 

"The period of deferment in Class 
II-A may not exceed six months but 
such deferment may be renewed from 
time to time if the local board finds 
that such continuance is justified un- 
der the Regulations. 

"In applying these broad provisions 
there must be no deviation from the 
clear statutory prohibition against 
group deferments. The local board has 
full authority and responsibility for 
deciding whether or not a registrant 
is a necessary man and whether he

L. V. joins with 5 colleges 
In Meeting at Albright 

Spring peeped out from beneath its 
snowy covers to make a lovely day 
last Saturday for a visit to Albright 
College by Miss Gillespie, Floda 
Trout, and Phoebe Geyer, representa- 
tives to a conference of Women's Stu- 
dent Government Associations held 

Activities for the day began with 
the extension of greetings from Al- 
bright's governing bodies to the dele- 
gates who were sent from Ursinus 
College, Cedar Crest College, Mora- 
vian College, Elizabethtown College, 
Lebanon Valley College, and Albright 
College, after which deans and stu- 
dents separated for discussion groups. 
"Making Democracy Work in Wo- 
men's Student Government" was the 
general theme for the conference. In 
the morning meetings the deans and 
advisers exchanged ideas on "Consti- 
tutions of Women's Student Govern- 
ment and Their Development" while 
student councilors dealt with the 
question, "How can government be 
made truly student government with 
the cooperation of all the students?" 

Following lunch in the college din- 
ing hall, where the whole atmosphere 
and service impressed our delegates, 
round-table discussions were held. 
Topics presented were the relation of 
day and resident students, the cooper- 
ation of all students in government, 
and education for honor. 

Tea was served before all represen- 
tatives gathered for a general assem-

Whenever this matter of elections 
arises we unconsciously, or conscious- 
ly, look from side to side to note who 
has been nominated and by whom 
and to attempt to see how the vote 
seems to be going. Most important of 
all is the interest in the outcome of 
the election which is held to be the 
will of the majority. It has always 
been maintained that the individuals 
elected should be the choice of the 

In a recent election, however, it was 
found that some individuals lowered 
themselves to the rather ignominious 
practice of stuffing the ballot box. It 
was also discovered that some used 
'strong-arm" methods to influence the 
vote of others. Both of their practices 
were ostentatiously performed and 
without attempt to conceal them. 

Campus politics, as well as national 
political divisions, have been recog- 
nized as necessary evils which are 
maintained only to keep alight the 
flame of interest in campus activities. 
By having several factions disputing 
on this point or that point, all the bet- 
ter ideas on every subject are brought 
to the surface for the attention of all. 
Instead of having passive acceptance 
of every measure introduced in organ- 
ization all the latent possibilities are 
brought out of the darkness into the 
light and thus benefitting all concern- 
ed. Only in this degree do we consider 
campus politics of any value. But 
when groups of individuals deliberate- 
ly set out to turn elections into forces 
then we must consider politics in the 
college as detrimental to the welfare 
of all. 

thanks, jerry 

A word of thanks is again due to 
Athletic Director Frock for coopera- 
ting with LA VIE in the matter of re- 
leases from his office. We are more 
than grateful to see Mr. Frock willing 
to aid the college newspaper by giving 
the students first-hand news articles 
of interest to the campus. By doing 
this, we are immeasureably assisted 
in producing a more interesting week- 
ly and editing a sheet that our col- 
legiate readers await as every press 
day rolls around. Again, we extend 
our hand for this cooperation. 

Reminiscences or 

by Alf Noise 

To the average student mentioning 
"hopping" simply suggests an eco- 
nomical method of traveling. Altho 
it is only natural that we should rec- 
ognize its financial value, it would 
be interesting to note how many of 
us are able to appreciate its roman- 
tic angle. If you are one who sees 
farther than wallet appeasement when 
you delight in the company of the 
day's chauffeur or the circumstances 
accompanying the hop, then you are 
bathing in the true benefits of a maj- 
or subject on the unwritten curricu- 
lum of a youthful romanticist. 

As a digit traveler one is bound to 
remember some drivers are above the 
great parade of short-lived stranger 
friends who come and go in the mass- 
es of the unknown. Yes, the old far- 
mer and his cheery conversation sat- 
urated in the Holland brogue, the hus- 
ky marine and his yarns of days as a 
"leather-neck," the college football 
coach and his stories in athletic pro- 
fanity, the interesting civil engineer 
who hated the ladies, the "Capitol 
Hill" stenographer and her free op- 
eratic vocal contributions, the tough 
truck driver and his questionable car- 
go, the college "prexy" with his per- 
petual good-natured conversations, 
the salesman whose hopping invita- 
tion extends to Chicago for company, 
the "old grad" with his questions 
about the "good old place" are but a 
few of many possible enumerations. 
Hundreds of characters are found on 
the unwritten leaves of memories 
which are the lives in life. 

Although the "hopper's" friends 
deserve the most attention, the ve- 
hicle itself can not be ignored. Since 
the "thumbers" have tried all sorts 
of "gasoline buggies," they may be 
considered with respect when they 
speak of cars. Yes, large cars and 
small cars, expensive cars and cheap 
cars, new models and old ones, clean 
cars and dirty cars — all form the 
lengthy line of past conveyances. 
Bouncing about the cab of a five-ton 
express truck, sitting on the wooden 
tray of a baker truck, shivering in 
the rattling frame of a "model T," 
cramped in the maze of a salesman's 
back-seat samples, sailing smoothly 
along in the latest model Buick, or 
sitting haughtily behind a black cap- 
ped chauffeur in a Packard are all in- 
cluded on the "thumber's" list. 

Aside from the prose element, 
"hopping" is plum full of its little 
dramas. Comedy can be enacted in 
such acts as thumbing a hearse and 
bringing a smile to the faces of sol 
emn bearers; jumping into a car 
when the driver only had intention of 
parking; or thumbing one's nose to 
the bus drivers and the "picklepusses" 
behind the wheels of certain passing 
autos. Tragedy creeps in when one 
gives the signal to the state cop who 
delights in his highway oratory; when 
the city 'flatfoot" raids the corner 
and invites the traveler to the warm 
quarters of the Bastille, when your 
political argument lands you on the 
open road "so many miles from 
home," or when the driver calls upon 
you to lend a mechanical hand when 
the "buggie" breaks down. 

Snow and rain, cold and heat, sun 
and wind, night and day, all offer their 
ndividual settings for the unconquer- 
ed thumb. Many cars may pass be- 
fore a friend is found; but the trav- 
eler has his "rabbit-foot days" and 
his "black cat" days so he just keeps 
smiling behind the exercising thumb. 
The British cry of "thumbs up" is a

Spring Comes to L. V* C 85 mile an hour wind . . . Temperature 

stuck at about 12 degrees . . . Benjamin, Tyrone Lab alligator, frozen in his 
watery home . . . Classes dismissed because of cold rooms . . . Everybody 
bundled up like mid-January . . . Swimming plans deferred until April . . . 
Only thing that really looked like spring was the new twosome . . . Steve 
Kubisen and Barb Converse . . . 

Old Home Week . . . M. D. S. R. took on a familiar appearance one 
day last week when Ted Powell, our own Fuller Brush man, Herb Miller, 
and John (I've-been-working-on-the-railroad) Lynch put in their appearance 
at about the same time . . . 

Campus Culture . . . W and B's one-act plays . . . Erdman stars as 
man-about-town . . . Peg Martin having trouble finding size 9 riding boots 
. . . . Millie Cross a becoming old maid . . . Ellen Ruppersberger emotes ef- 
fectively .... Johnnie Dressier sticking so close to rehearsals tho' he had no 
part — or was he sticking close to Peg? .... Wayne Mowry's little-boy 
voice coming in handy .... Ed and Gen Stansfield playing the love scene 
. . . . The reality behind Sauders' voice .... 

A Slight Case of Hyperbole .... Report that Sam Stein lost an ear 
in gym class seems rather overdone . . . Actually he only cut it . . . Report 
that Clarkie had pneumonia also exaggerated . . . Call it rather our old 
friend the flu . . . 

March 15 Headache .... Naive-like, we thought no one around here but 
the profs bothered with income taxes . . . And now we find that Johnny 
Wise paid his like a man .... 

Interview .... Because of the many requests which have come to the 
editor of this column for a definite statement on the status of the Bordwell- 
Fauber affair, we have (at great personal risk) obtained an interview with 
each of them . . . Miss B. refused to commit herself permanently but said 
that for the time being "I qrv evtopnik mcdorj h lliedyxrq" . . . Mr. F. had 
his statement ready as soon as we asked the question, "Friday a la qurtompd 
sig tra la la. Ichadun fif punnagederxvdq Junior Prom! Ei qrf ei mhhjcthn." 

On the Spot .... At the Tuesday night W. & B. program your reporter 
was on the spot for any and all possible news — but not quite on the spot as 
much as was Dick Phillips .... Squiring Martie Yeakle, Dick was doing- 
plenty O K until Marian Kreider (his Math 36 oh-my-oh!) arrived and sat 

down behind him! As the evening blitzkreiged along, Dick's changing 

facial expressions were better than any on-stage .... 

Chivalry Lives Again .... Last Thursday night when Betty Foster 
was doing a lady in distress act because a much-desired evening dress 
wasn't delivered from Harrisburg, Pete Olenchuck and Herb Greider hopped 
to the capitol, obtained the dress and returned in the wee small hours . . . 

Why Columnists Turn Gray .... Just when we thought we had a grand 
scoop for you, the gears failed to mesh and something went rotten in Den- 
mark .... In other words, last week's item "Justice to All" didn't come 
through as planned . . . But to prove our appreciation to our unknown 
correspondent we're going to run it (complete!) this week .... In an- 
swer to the strange case of McFadden-Rapp one Wheaties box-top and a 
letter of explanation reached us via the La Vie box .... The tres, tres 
enlightening contents of the letter follow: "The culprit who revealed the 
confidential bit of gossip dangerously near breaking the ties-that-bind of 
those involved, has in my opinion no room to talk, inasmuch as he, Secret 
Agent X-9, conducts a tutoring class of young ladies in the deserted halls 
of the Harrisburg Clearing House. This class which meets one day each 
week, much to his regret, convenes for the sole purpose of brushing up on 
certain business administration subjects — so we are told. 

"I regret not being able to comply with your limitation of twenty-five 
words, but I have enclosed a box-top which makes it legal. 

"Oh! Nearly signed off without revealing the identity of this Super- 
man. He is none other than that highly respected student Treasurer of 
the Senior Class, Mr. Frederick Smee, Esq., better known in college circles 
as "Herkie." 

If I Were Superman 

by Bruce Sonders 

If I were Superman, there would 
be no need of my writing Englj Sn 

themes, taking Greek exams nr „ 

' ui wor- 
rying about conditional sentences i 
French. By this time I should hav e 
mastered a complete four-year coll^g 
course instead of only a fractional 

part of a freshman year. It 


be heaven, indeed, to lay aside 
worries and tasks which envelop a 
college career. 

Like Superman, I could soar ovev 
the housetops of all tha townspeople 
With my superhuman eyesight I could 
find out for myself whether the J Us 
tice of the Peace really preserves 
eternal peace in his own household 
or whether he puts on a bold front 
I could gaze upon the sight of slav- 
ing college students, and laugh at 
them — a sort of laugh which would 
cynically express my ego and self- 
complacency. That would indeed be 
the life, to know all there is to know 
about my neighbors, and to laugh at 
the fools who slave four years to 
acquire ^ college education, when I, 
with my incomparable senses, could 
absorb the same material by just gaz- 
ing at the text books which are util- 
ized in such an endeavor. Gloat! 
Gloat! Gloat! Boy, would I gloat! 

Of course, humanity would expect 
a man of my ability, agility, and sta- 
bility to add something to the pub- 
lic's welfare. To start with, I'd rub 
out "old man" Adolf, the German fan- 
atic. With the combined speed of fif- 
ty flying fortresses, I'd head for Ger- 
many, pounce on Herr Hitler, bury 
his carcass, and quietly slip away. 
Then I'd head for Italy and entertain 
Mussolini 'the Mouse" in like fashion. 
Mr. Stalin, of Russia should be no 
problem after my short period of in- 
sane calisthenics. Having done all of 
this, I could return before the dawn 
and grab a "bite" of sleep as it were. 

There would be loads of things I 
could do. Everything I'd do would 
be 99 43-100 percent correct. 1 couldn't 
be wrong. I couldn't miss anything, 
because of my highly sensitized hear- 
ing facilities, visual capacities, and 
muscular mechanisms. I'd be king of 
ah. If I'd covet, I could acquire with- 
out the haunting echo of a conscience. 
Superman is so fast his conscience 
can't keep paca with him. He's mar- 

But, wait a minute! If I could g et 
through school in such a hurry* I'd ° e 
missing all the fun. I'd be raises

all the other recreational blessings

Review Of Yearlings 5 Season,- 
Newman Tops Scoring List 

Three Wins — Fifteen Defeats 

all 9 

Lebanon Valley Frosh Basket- 
u intet closed a most unsuccess- 

season last week by defeating the 
S Frosh on the Lebanon High 
o\ floor 38-28. The current quin- 
5 ° turned in one of the most disas- 
' seasons in basketball history at 

y C. in winning only three out of 
con tests for a .200 percentage. 



^ach Frock was unable to find a suit- 
formidable combination despite 
i a rnus changes made throughout 
\ e season to form a winning team. 

rfhe Freshmen showed real promise 

defeating a well-balanced Hershey 
industrial School outfit in the spa- 
c " ouS Lehanon High gym 28-23. In 
t he first game on the schedule Jerry 
frock placed a team on the floor that 
averaged well over six feet. Hopes for 
successful season were shortly 
dampened when the Ursinus Frosh 
Sv e defeated the Valley aggregation 
41-34 and the F. & M. yearlings fol- 
lowed suit with a 35-27 trouncing. 
\ewman and Dorazio each accounted 
for 10 points in the latter contest. 

The Blue and White outfit failed 
to snap the losing streak on two occa- 
sions when the Hershey Junior Col- 
lege outpointed the Valley, 47-34 in a 
free fouling game which developed af- 
ter the Dutchmen held a first half 
advantage. In this contest "Cardinal" 
Newman set the high game total for 
the season with 23 counters on 10 
field goals and three fouls. The Frock- 
men were still further chagrined when 
they wilted in the last period of the 
contest with Muhlenberg to be sub- 
merged 46-37 when Lentz, a former 
Dutchmen performer, developed a hot 
band in the last canto. 

The Frosh finally broke into the 
win column by downing the Dickinson 
outfit 44-20 as every member of the 
college five contributed to the win. 
Rising hopes were again short-lived 
when the Gettysburg Freshmen dump- 
ed Coach Frock's proteges 39-28 by 
handcuffing the Valley performers. 
T he Albright "Cubs" furnished tha 
opposition in the next game that 
proved to be a lethargic contest with 
* e Blue and White trailing 23-15 at 
* e final whistle. In another sloppily 
j%ed contest the Hershey Industrial 
totet avenged a defeat suffered ear- 
J* ln the year by dropping the L. V. 

• dub 44-32.

Sophs Triumph 

The Sophomore basketball team in 
the D. S. League again demonstrated 
its superiority over its rivals last 
week by gaining its eighth straight 
victory in downing a hardy Senior 
team 52-44. The Sophs played in a 
lackadaisical fashion, Captain Uhrich 
standing out in this particular of the 
game. Coach Bill Gollam finally yank- 
ed the "Captain" in the second half 
when Uhrich failed to show any signs 
of spirit whatsoever. Gollam used nu- 
merous substitutions against the Sen- 
iors, who played intact for the entire 
game, in order to give his reservists 
experience in anticipation of the play 
off with the Dorm League champs. 

The second year men went way out 
in front 20-4 in the first period. The 
Seniors rallied in the next period to 
hold the Sophs to 7 points while gain- 
ing 7 for their own total. The van- 
quished outfit really went to work in 
the third canto with Gingrich leading 
the attack. The Srs. trailed 39-32 in 
the last quarter by virtue of outscor- 
ing the champs 21-12 in the third 

The victors reorganized in the last 
period and stopped the rally begun by 
the upperclassmen. Metro led the win- 
ners with 21 counters and seconded 
by Little's 14. Metro played a com- 
mendable pivot game and handled the 
bankboards in yoeman fashion. Ging- 
rich slung in 27 points to gain high 
scoring laurels for the day. 

The other ball game nearly turned 
into a riot when the Juniors suffered 
a 61-39 defeat at the hands of an ag- 
gressive Frosh aggregation in taking 
the floor with a patched up line-up 
and without the moral support of 
"Cussing Carl" Sherk, tutor of the 
upper-classmen. Several of the Junior 
performers were removed from the 
bloody affair in the second half in us- 
ing measures to gain victory not le- 
galized in this circuit. Referee Ra- 
kow instructed these men to provide 
their opponents with hip-pads and 
shoulder pads if they expected to par- 
ticipate in other games in this loop 
this season. 

The Frosh had no difficulty in gain- 
ing a 20-7 lead at quarter and 41-17 
advantage at half-time. The losers 
outscored the victors 32-20 in the last 
two periods, but were unable to wipe 
out the deficit. Unger and Carbaugh 
rang up 25 and 16 points respectively 
for the first year men, while Wornas 
threw in 13 to head the scoring col- 
umn for his team-mates. 

scoring 113 points in 49 field goals 
and 15 fouls. "Nick" Dorazio was not 
far behind the lanky center with 25 
goals from afield and 33 points from 
the foul stripe. Light, C. Miller, and 
"Bob" Kearn earned third, fourth, 
and fifth positions with 63, 49, and 
42 points respectively. The opposition 
scored 505 points to 436 for the Valley 
in 15 games.

Baseball Squad Reports to Ullery

Frock Releases *41 
Grid Schedule 

Early this week Coach "Jerry" 
Frock released an eight game football 
schedule that the 1941 Blue and White 
gridiron eleven will play in this com- 
ing fall. In glancing at the names of 
the opposing teams, a number of op- 
ponents of other years and several old 
rivals are found on the list. Included 
in this group are Moravian, Albright, 
P. M. C, and F. and M. Blue Ridge 
was met for the first time last year 
while Juniata, Bucknell, and C. C. 
N. Y., did not appear on last year's 

The season will open on September 
27 as Coach Frock takes his boys to 
Lewisburg to engage the Bucknell 
"Bisons" in the first game of the year. 
The Bucknell outfit has not been met 
on the gridiron since 1937 when the 
Dutchmen fell 14 to 0. On the follow- 
ing Friday evening the Valley will 
journey to Bethlehem where the Mor- 
avian "Greyhounds" will furnish the 
opposition under the arc lights for 
the fourth straight year. The Blue 
and White came out on top 8-7 and 
6-0 in the first two games of the series 
but were defeated last fall 19-3. 

It is not known definitely whether 
the next aggregation on the schedule, 
City College of New York, will be en- 
tertained by the Frockmen in a night 
contest on Oct. 10 in the Hershey 
Chocolate Bowl or in an afternoon 
game at the Lebanon High Stadium 
on Oct. 11. Albright, traditional rivals 
of L. V. C. will be the guests of the 
Dutchmen on the following week-end 
on the Lebanon High gridiron. The 
"Lions" triumphed last year in Read- 
ing 3-0 on a fourth quarter field goal. 

The Cadets of P. M. C. will play 
host to the Frockmen on the last Sat- 
urday in October. The athletes from 
the military school won in Lebanon 
last year in the Homecoming contest 
19-16 by virtue of a questionable last 
minute touchdown. The Home Coming 
game of the year will be staged on the 
College Athletic Field on Nov. 1 when 
the team representing Blue Ridge Col- 
lege of Windsor, Maryland will at- 
tempt to avenge last year's 6-0 de- 
feat on a muddy cornfield in Mary- 

The seventh game of the year will 
find the L. V. C. gridders engaging 
the remnants of the world beater team 
of 1940 at Franklin and Marshall Col- 
lege at Williamson field in Lancaster. 
The Diplomats came out on top 21-0 
last year in the season opener of the 
Valley. A tussle with the Juniata In- 
dians on Nov. 15 will conclude the sea- 
son for the Valley footballers. The 
outfit from Huntingdon came out sec- 
ond best, 32-0, when last engaged in 
Annville in 1939. 

The Dutchmen have only ever met 
C. C. N. Y. twice in the football his- 
tory of the college. A 6-6 tie resulted in 
1928 and the Valley gained a 32-0 
victory in 1933. 

A group of nine lettermen includ- 
ing Captain Ed Schillo, Staley, Shay, 
Schmalzer, Matala, Eminhizer, Russo, 
Dorazio, and Hall will return to the 
campus immediately after Labor Day 
in September to begin training and 
preparation to meet.

Upon the completion of the basket- 
ball season, Coach Ullery immediately 
issued his call for those who had as- 
pirations of becoming baseball candi- 
dates for the Lebanon Valley College 

Present at this first meeting were 
twenty-three candidates, only nine of 
whom were new men, never before 
having competed for a position on 
the team. Heading the list of old men 
at the conference was Captain Frank 
Kuhn, erstwhile hurler of the Blue 
and White corps. For three years 
Kuhn has borne the brunt of the 
pitching assignment and in this, his 
final year, he has followed in the foot- 
steps of his roommate, Chris Walk, 
who was Captain of the squad last 

Noticeable in the group were the 
lads that have made up the major 
portion of the infield for the past two 
years. Mease, Captain of the basket- 
ball team, is a candidate for the 
short stop position. Smith, who has 
played the hot corner for the past two 
years, is again making an effort to 
gain that spot. Don Staley, clever 
second sacker, has announced his in- 
tention of shouldering a hurling role. 
If that should happen, it would leave 
the keystone stack open, with Kitz- 
miller ready to step in. First base is 
a problem, but Harry Matala holds 
the upper hand in that territory be- 
cause of his last year's experience. 

The catching angle is Coach Ul- 
lery 's biggest problem. Ed Schillo is 
working for the receiving job, but 
he will undoubtedly be hard-pressed 
by Bob Kern and Bill Donmoyer. Don- 
moyer is an experienced man for the 
position behind the bat having done 
quite a bit of catching for indepen- 
dent teams. Kern is a converted in- 
fielder trying for the job. Another 
possibility is Alex Rakow, former 
American Legion catcher, who handed 
in his name for that spot. 

Outfield aspirants are almost all 
new men. Dick Beckner and Bill 
Steele are holdovers from last year, 
but perhaps the best prospect is Ted 
Youse, former Myerstown Legion star. 
If Youse's arm has healed well 
enough, he will undoubtedly be a big 
boon to Coach Ullery. 

Coach Ullery has had his pitchers 
and catchers working out in the gym 
so that they may be well advanced 
when the warmer weather comes 

Following is a list of the aspirants 
for the various positions: 

Catchers — Schillo, Donmoyer, Kern, 
Weidman, and Rakow. 

Pitchers — Kuhn, Weiler, Staley, 
Seiverling, Mays, and Russo. 

Infielders — Kitzmiller, Smith, 
Mease, Edwards, Matala, and Zerbe. 

Outfielders — Youse, Eminhizer, C. 
Miller, Hummel, Beckner, Steele, and

Stage Whispers 

On Tuesday Wig & Buckle held one of the most successful meetings of 
the year. One thing that made it so successful was the good crowd that was 
in attendance. Then, of course, the major factor in the evening's success 
were the two plays. 

The first play, "The Truth About Women," produced by Jeannette 
Kalbach was an exceptionally good comedy. The "never a dull moment" at- 
mosphere of the whole thing kept the audience interested the whole time. 
There were several high spots in this production among which may be 
listed the entrance of Millie Cross, looking so much like an enraged Puri- 
tan; the withering looks exchanged by the Misses' Cross and Martin; Carroll 
Reed's amazing presence of mind in covering up a momentary lapse of mem- 
ory with, "Let's see, what did I do then?" The prize 

boner, though, was when Maurie took his manuscript with him 
when the remainder of the play depended on its being on the table. But all 
in all, we think that we should congratulate Jeannette on a very good job of 

The second play, "Air Raid," produced by Martha Jane Koontz was very 
unusual both in the script itself and in the way it was produced. At first the 
audience seemed a little restless, but as time went on they fell under the 
spell of the play. The lighting effects were really extraordinary, especially 
the effect of the green light on the mother and son. Another thing which 
made the play outstanding was the sound effects — the airplane, the anti- 
aircraft guns, the eerie voice of the radio announcer, and the crash at the 
end. These effects were the result of work done by Donald Bartley and to 
him goes an "Oscar" for the most outstanding work of the year. Special 
mention in acting goes to Martha Davies, who did a very good cover-up job 
at one place and Jane Baker. Martha Jane did a really remarkable piece 
of work in her direction of this play. 

Freeland Tours South In 
Recent Concert Trip 

Merle Freeland, piano instructor in 
the Lebanon Valley Conservatory, re- 
cently returned from a concert tour 
of the South with Earle Spicer, bari- 
tone. During the two weeks of their 
tour, they presented concerts in 
North Carolina, South Carolina, Geor- 
gia, and Tennessee. Between engage- 
ments, they spent several days at Day- 
tona Beach, Florida. Another side- 
light of the trip was the program they 
gave for the soldiers at Camp Jack- 
son, near Columbia, South Carolina. 

Mr. Freeland and Mr. Myron Tay- 
lor, voice teacher at L. V. C, will ap- 
pear in concert with the Lebanon Val 
ley College Orchestra this spring.

should be selected or deferred. It must 
consider all of the evidence submitted 
in connection with each individual 
case and must decide each case on its 
particular facts." 

It is very important that college 
students themselves guard against loss 
of personal and group morale as well 
as increasing hysteria. President 
Roosevelt has advised students to re- 
main in college until called by the 
Government for training. Temptations 
to discontinue college work because of 
uncertainty or the immediate induce- 
ments offered by the high wages of in- 
dustry should be resisted, and they 
can be resisted if the student takes the 
long-range view of the situation. In 
the meanwhile all students at Leba- 
non Valley College who think they are 
justified should petition their local 
boards to grant them occupational de- 
ferment as long as their education 
preparation appears to be of greater 
importance to the welfare of the na- 
tion that military training at present. 
The College will cooperate in furnish- 
ing whatever evidence may be avail- 
able for this purpose. 

As President of the College and 
Chairman of our Local Board, I shall 
be glad to confer with students rela- 
tive to their specific personal and ed- 
ucational problems ; also to assist reg- 
istrants in preparing their question- 
naires. Let every student realize that 
the greatest contribution he can now 
make to national defense is to make 
the best possible use of his time in the 
mastery of his subjects and in achiev- 
ing self-control at a time when many 
disintegrating factors are operating 
so disastrously for those of unstable 
personalities. Dignity, poise, and cour- 
age are desirable attributes in a world 
that holds human life so cheaply. Be 

proud of your American citizenship 
and be loyal to her institutions and 
her way of life. Do the thing that 
should be done here and now on our 
college campus to prepare yourselves 
for whatever emergencies the future 
may have for you. Let others mope, 
talk foolishly, and surrender to what 
seems like futility. You may not be 
able to do much to change world con- 
ditions; but you can do a great deal 
to maintain your sanity and to enjoy 
the indestructible values that belong 
to the inner kingdom. Don't sulk and 
go to pieces. Be a man!

The basketball team was not the 
only crowd to meet success within the 
last week. Last Saturday the girls' 
archery team traveled to the Shenk 
Archery Range to compete in a meet 
with seven other teams. The Blue 
and White team placed fourth in the 
whole group, third among the women. 
The team is to be especially com 
mended on its success in consideration 
of the fact that Lebanon Valley was 
the only one of the group that is not 
equipped with an indoor range. Fol- 
lowing are the scores turned in by 
the teams: 

Millersville __. 1484 

Shippensburg (men) 1305

L. V. C. 1241 

Lehigh - 1196 

Wilson 1184 

Shippensburg 913 

Franklin & Marshall 838 

Margaretta Carey with a score of 
337 topped our own team. Klopp with 
309 was second, closely followed by 
Esbenshade with 304 points to her 
credit. Louise Keller was in the eel

(J. E. Jones Presents 
Scientific Lecture 

During an extended chapel period 
on Monday, March 24, Mr. C. E. Jones 
presented an unusual program dif- 
ferent from any in recent years. The 
title of his demonstrated lecture was 
"Silent Sounds and Nerve Electri- 

The program began to the tune of 
"Blueberry Hill," which recording Mr. 
Jones played with different frequen- 
cies. It was- -discovered that the stu- 
dents enjoyed the music best when 
it was played with a frequency under 
300 cycles per second. This, Mr. Jones 
said, was not music, but bass and 
rhythm, which is about all one hears 
on the average nickelodeon. 

By experiment it was shown that 
16 cycles per second is about the low 
est pitch hearable. The top pitch for 
older people is 12,000 cycles. The 
younger the individual, the higher the 
pitch he is able to hear. 

The next experiment was in the field 
of nerve electricity. The cathode ray 
tube which is used in television was 
demonstrated in a new role, that of 
recording electricity generated by the 
body. Today by means of the electro 
cardiogram, heart action can be ac 
curately recorded. 

Again this new phase of science is 
very useful in the study of the head 
It accurately locates tumors which 
formerly necessitated the removal of 
the patient to the asylum where he 
spent the remainder of his days; or 
perhaps he died in a hospital as the 
result of several unsuccessful opera 

In Oklahoma City 
Freeland Is Soloist 

W. Merl Freeland, instructor of pi- 
ano in the Lebanon Valley College 
Conservatory, will leave this week for 
Norman, Oklahoma, where he will ap- 
pear April 3 as guest soloist with the 
Oklahoma City Symphony Orchestra 
at the University of Oklahoma, play- 
ing the Symphonic Variations of Cae- 
sar Pranck. 

During the past few weeks Mr. 
Freeland has presented a series of 
concerts in the New England states, 
appearing in Putney, Vermont; Bos- 
ton, Massachusetts; Brown Universi- 
ty, Providence, Rhode Island; Mt. 
Herman School, Mt. Herman, Massa- 
chusetts; and in Staten Island, New 

After his Oklahoma concert, Mi. 
Freeland will remain at his home in 
Norman for the Easter holidays. 

L.V. Musicians Play 
For Harrisburg Club 

Three Lebanon Valley musicians 
participated in a program presented 
for the Wednesday club, a women's 
musical organization of Harrisburg, 
at the Harrisburg Civic Club on 
March 1!). They were Marian Roiff, 
Betty Shillott, and Victoria Turco. 

Violin solos played by Victoria Tur- 
o were Maying, Hen re Ho, and Hoar 
of Nine, all by Cecil Burleigh. Betty 
Shillott entertained on the piano with 
The While Peacock- by Charles Griff es 
and American I'olonaLe by John Car- 
penter. The first movement of Edward 
Macdowell's Second Piano Concerto in 
I) Minor was played by Marian Reiff 
with orchestral accompaniment on sec- 
ond piano played by Betty Shillott.

that the Pi Gamma Mu Certificates

Last Combat 
Of Season; 
62 Wins; 72 Losses 

Saturday's match resulted in a loss 
to the Philadelphia College of Phar- 
macy and Science, 13-5. Fighting the 
return match on the home strip the 
L. V. men held the opponents to the 
identical score of the previous away 
match of December 11, 1940. 

In foils the L. V. men fought the 
visitors to a total of 5-4 with Phillips 
taking two, Erdman and Fritsche one 

Due to the difficulty in securing a 
well-rounded sabre schedule the Blue 
and White men gained little exper- 
ience all season. Facing a group of 
well coached, seasoned fighters for 
only the third time this year the L. V. 
sabresmen stood their ground valiently 
but were downed 8-1 by a much more 
experienced team. Rapp procured top 
honors on our team by defeating 
Stock 5-2. 

Concluding the season with this 
match we find that the Valley's first 
year of fencing resulted in a total 
scoring of 72 bouts lost to 62 bouts 
won. Nice going fencers and good luck 
in the years to come.

Saturday Night 

On Saturday evening, March 28, 
Philo will sponsor a Poverty Dance in 
the Alumni Gymnasium to start at 
8:00 p. m. The price of admission will 
be ten cents per couple, and everyone 
is invited to come. The committee 
working to make this an enjoyable 
success are Ralph Conley, Jack Dobbs, 
Bob Hambright, and Bob Dresel. Pov- 
erty dances have hitherto been well at- 
tended. As tha central idea is the ap- 
pearance of all present in old clothes, 
patches, and Matters, so than an in- 
formal and gay atmosphere prevails. 
This year's poverty party is to pro- 
vide entertainment for those not at- 
tending Kalo. 

Conservatory Arranges 
Ninth Music Festival 

Glee Cluf^gand 
On Program - 


The Ninth Annual M^usic Festival 
uf the Lebanon Valley Conservatory 
of Music will be held on Thursday, 
April 24, and Friday, April 25, in En- 
gle Hall. The Glee Club and Band 
will present the concert on Thursday 
evening and a chorus of 80 voices will 
present "Elijah" on Friday. 

The Glee Club, Musical Ambassa- 
dors for the College, will sing the 
most popular numbers used on their 
recent tour. This year the tour was 
most successful ; the club acquired the 
ensemble of the clubs of other years, 
and there are those that would ac- 
claim this year's organization the best. 
The Band is also a very popular or- 
ganization on the campus. There is a 
much better balance in the band this 
year and this should prove a helpful 
factor in their concert. They will play 
both modern and classical numbers, 
some of the outstanding being: 
"Russian Sailor's Dance" Gliere 
"Unfinished Symphony" Schubert 
Paraphrase of "Turkey in the Straw" 

l>e n marl: 

"Mississippi Rhapsody" Weinbergbr 
A new arrangement for band 

In addition to these, there will be 
lighter numbers and lively marches. 
This year, the band will feature three 
soloists : 

Robert Hackman — baritone. 

Victorio Turco — violin. 

Loy Ebersole — flute. 

"Elijah," an oratorio by Mendels- 
sohn, will be given by a chorus of 80 
accompanied by an orchestra of 30 
and an organ. Last year Handel '3 
"Messiah" was presented and a capa- 
city audience thoroughly enjoyed a 
superb performance. The soloists for 
the oratorio will be : 

Mildred Gangwer, a graduate of the 
Conservatory, Class of '39, now Su- 
pervisor of Music in the schools of 
Paulsboro, New Jersey, soprano.

Basketball Day Brings 
Three Teams To L,V.C. 

On Saturday morning, March 22, 
the girls' basketball teams of three 
schools, Cedar Crest, Shippensburg, 
Susquehanna, met Lebanon Valley. 
L. V. drew Cedar Crest as an oppo- 
nent, having Susquehanna to oppose 
Shippensburg. A strong Cedar Crest 
quintet downed L. V. C. to the tune of 
23-17. Klopp racked up ten of the 
losers' seventeen points. 

In the other game of the morning 
Susquehanna defeated Shippensburg 
21-9. These results effected an after- 
noon schedule of Susqehanna vs. Ce- 
dar Crest and L. V. C. vs. Shippens- 

Cedar Crest triumphed over Sus- 
quehanna by a fifteen-point margin, 
the score, 34-19. This put Cedar Crest 
in first place among the schools and 
Susquehanna followed in order. 

The final game, that between Leba- 
non Valley and Shippensburg, put the 
Blue and White girls in third place 
when they won by a score of 29-14. In

$ we can't let them down! 

Six months ago, several doctors got 
together to form the Medical and 
Surgical Supply Committee of Amer- 
ica for the purpose of relieving the 
suffering among sick, wounded and 
homeless civilians in Great Britain 
and Greece. Today that organization 
is composed of more than 280 promi- 
nent physicians and surgeons who op- 
erate through regional branches that 
have been established in principal cit- 
ies throughout the United States. Al- 
ready, the Committee has collected 
and shipped overseas more than $157,- 
000 worth of surgical instruments, 
drugs, vaccines, serums, pharmaceu- 
ticals, vitamins, biologicals, concen- 
trated foods and other vital supplies. 

The Medical and Surgical Supply 
Committee of America is faced with 
a difficult situation in equipping emer- 
gency field hospitals and helping to 
combat the ever rising danger of epi- 
demics and diseases threatening Eng- 
land and Greece as the war grows 
more intense. Furthermore, the Com- 
mittee, which has recently expanded 
its facilities to enable sending medical 
aid to the Free French Forces in Af- 
rica as well as to the Royal Norwe- 
gian Convoy servicing British ships 
out of Canada, is desperately in need 
of funds with which to purchase emer- 
gency first aid kits and surgical op- 
erating sets for these allies of Eng- 

These sets are specifically designed 
to enable surgeons to perform any 
type of emergency operation at the 
scene of the injury. If every college 
in the United States were to contri- 
bute at least one of these units an 
enormous amount of suffering would 
be relieved. First aid kits may be 
purchased and shipped insured either 
to the Free French in Africa or to 
the Norwegian Convoys in Canada for 
$70; complete surgical operating sets 
may be purchased and shipped insured 
for $200. Each unit bears a plate 
inscribed with the name of the indi- 
vidual or group making the donation. 

Here is an opportunity to help the 
committee of physicians and surgeons 
to continue their aid to the stricken 
non-combatants and other innocent 
war victims abroad. Leave your dona- 
tion, large or small, with the editor 
it directly to the' national headquar- 
ters of the Medical and Surgical Sup- 
ply Committee of America, 420 Lex- 
ington Avenue, New York City. 

Thousands of suffering people in 
Great Britain and Greece are crying 
for help. Don't let them down! 

concerning the 
"wishful thinkers" 

by Charles Tyson 

The American people have long been 
known for their highly emotional na 
hue and his characteristic can nev 
er lie more easily recognized than at 
present. But today it has branched 
out into an old field with a newlj 
coined title. It can be assumed for the 
time being that most of us have heard, 
and often much to our disgust, of the 
term "wishful thinking." Try as one 
might this disease continually creeps 
into our conversation, our reasoning 
powers, with the result that we often 
make blind assertions which lower our 
own intelligence quota in the minds 
of those who know us not so well. 
This mental "disease," for that is 
truly just what it is, is closely akin 
to intolerance so that whenever one 
of our own number tries to rid him- 
self of this malady and tries to think 
straight he is very often made the 
scapegoat of the "wishful thinkers." 
This has happened in recent weeks to 
one of our foremost Americans, a man 
who symbolizes the true spirit of the 
American democratic system. We re- 
fer to Charles A. Lindbergh, who by 
his own choice has dared to face the 
wrath of the mentally blinded. 

Lindbergh has told us a number of 
times just how we stand on the mat- 
ter cf national preparedness. He can 
speak with great authority for he has 
seen with his own calculating eyes 
just how well we are prepared to wage 
war at this time. For several years he 
measured the extent cf German air 
power and viewed its rapid increase 
in production. This "Lone Eagle," who 
is now truly alone in his fight against 
intolerance, has noted also the air 
power and the air production of noble 
England. With these three views 
firmly entrenched in his reasoning 
mind's eye he has told us that Eng- 
land hasn't a chance to defeat Ger- 
many and at best can expect only a 

We should remember that this man 
speaks this way because he knows the 
hard facts. Yet millions of Americans 
who have no idea whatsoever of com- 
parative military might have heaped 
coals of fire upon his head for daring 
to speak in such a fatalistic manner. 
Countless Americans have dared to 
call him an agent of Hitler, — a Nazi! 
Such idiocy ! Here is a loyal American 
citizen who is merely trying to save 
us from humiliation, debt, the loss of 
thousands of American boys upon for- 
eign battlefields, loss of shipping, and 
the threat of post-war unemployment, 
And we dare to call HIM a Nazi! 

Even if we have already formed our 
own opinions on this subject we should 
still try to consider the points and 
queries of the opposition. In order to 
broaden our own outlook we should 
read the opinions of those who realize 
the urgent need for straight, const rue- 
Live thinking. Col. Lindebergh has 
written a letter to the American peo- 
ple in a national weekly magazine, — 
Collier's, to be exact. The magazine 
itself does not agree with Mr. Lind- 
bergh's sentiments concerning Eng- 
land but it still dares to print the 
truth as an authority sees it, so we, 
as supposedly intelligent American 
students, should dare to read and 

Clionians Entertains 
At Spring "Open-house" 

Clio entertained at an Open House 
in North Hall parlor last Friday ev- 
ening. Decorations fostered a spring- 
like atmosphere. Entertainment con- 
sisting of cards, games and dancing 
was provided and hospitality was 
further extended with the serving of 
cookies and punch. 


Fredda Gibson was singing with 
a small band at a college prom 
when Richard Himber summoned 
her to New York to join his or- 
chestra. Thus she became an im- 
portant singer overnight at the 
age of eighteen. Later Fredda 
was featured with Bobby Hac-

girl complexion; don't get dishpan 
hands); it will take your beard off 
without any pulling; use it for after-

The rehearsals of the Kalo-Delphi an 
play, "Outward Bound," are f ast 
drawing to a close, and there are de- 
finite signs thatt he polishing up has 
begun. Ye might as well start our 
review by telling you to keep your eye 
on Betty Minnich. We don't know if 
any of her ancestors were Cockney 
but we do know that she has her ac- 
cent darned near perfect. If you re- 
member, she took the Oscar in "The 
Importance of Being Earnest" in the 
fall, and there are indications that 
she will continue to do so for her four 
years here. . . . Then ther's Bud Boltz. 
He has a really difficult part to por- 
tray and he's doing splendidly. The 
utter simplicity with which he does 
the prayer scene is very impressive, 
and makes the scene, which could so 
easily be funny, really appeal to us. 
. . . Ralph Shay as Scrubby, the bar- 
tender, is doing his usually fine piece 
of work. There are a few places where 
the lines are more serious than Mr. 
Shay, and a queer result occurs, but 
we know that when the final test 
comes, he will take them through with 
flying colors. The other night he was 
even reminded of the poor starving 
Germans to make him sober up. . • • 
Martha Wilt, who is replacing Caro- 
lyn Kissinger Powers, is doing anoth- 
er good piece of work. There are 
places where she could emote a little 
more, but that will probably be 
straightened out in the next few re- 
hearsals. . . . Frank Shenk really 
proves his worth in the scene where 
he gets hysterics. He gets so wild and 
wooly about them that your reporter 
had a little trouble in remembering 
that it is just a play after all. Keep 
it up, Frank! ... On the whole George 
Grow is doing a good piece of w0 
on his part as the pompous business 
man. For his first attempt at histron- 
ics, we think that he should have been 
discovered sooner. But then, a ^ ter ^

Sophs Triumph 
In Men's Day 
Student League 

Leftie Little Leads 

The current basketball season of 
the Men Day Students was terminated 
last week when the Sophs defeated 
the Frosh HH-'A'Z and the Juniors fell 
before the Seniors 52-,'{2. 

The champion outfit of Sophomores 
assumed an 8-5 lead in the first period 
and then dominated the play in the 
second canto to post a 18-9 advantage 
at intermission time. The Frosh more 
than held their own in the third 
quarter by virtue of fine floor work 
and sharp-shooting by Carbaugh and 
Unger but trailed 27-19 going into 
the final chapter. 

Weakened by the absence of 
"Stevie" Metro who was ejected from 
the contest for fistcuff activities with 
one of the first year men in the close 
4 wqrk, the Sophs encountered diffi- 
culty in holding the Frosh at bay. 
"Captain" Uhrich excited himself to 
the point of scoring six points when 
the going became tough for his team- 

"Lefty" Little led the victors with 
14 points to his credit while Engle 
again surprised with 12 counters to 
help the winning cause along. Unger 
threw in 13 points on 5 field goals and 
3 fouls and Carbaugh sank 5 buckets 
to head the losing scorers. 

The last game of the year found 
the Seniors battering their way to 
victory over the Juniors in a rough 
and tumble affair. The Juniors who 
earned the cognomen of "Axers" last 
year played a clean and fairly decent 
game as compared to the brutal tac- 
tics adopted by the Seniors who were 
led by Rakow in this department. The 
sawed-off blind-man adopted technique 
acquired on the gridiron last fall to 
advantage to batter the Juniors into 
the boards and drop them to the floor. 

The Seniors led all the way with 
quarter scores of 11-4, 22-11, 42-17, 
and a final reading of 52-32. The only 
period in which the third year men 
were able to reach the bank boards 
effectively without encountering op- 
position and being cut to the floor was 
in the last chukker after blocking 
back Boris (Rakow) was removed via 
the personal foul route. Gingrich put 
on a one-man demonstration to score 
32 points for the victors. Boltz, Shay, 
and Wornas teamed up to score 30 
of the total of 32 garnered by the

The Dorm League Champs and the 
Day Student League Champs met 
Monday in the first game of the intra- 
mural basketball playoffs with the 
Seniors representing the Dorm League 
coming out on top 41-43 in a thrilling 
battle that went into an overtime ses- 
sion. The Day Student Sophomore 
team tied the ball game just before 
the final whistle of the regulation 
game to force the contest into a five- 
minute extra period. 

The Seniors broke the ice on a shot 
by Conley. Myers hit the hoop three 
times for the Sophs to send his team- 
mates into a short-lived lead. The 
Dorm champs retaliated by swishing 
the nets to enable them to post a 15-10 
lead going into the second canto. 

Uhrich and Myers did a brilliant 
job in handling the backeourt bank- 
board and forcing the Seniors to shoot 
from difficult positions and thus los- 
ing possession of the hall in the second 
period The Sophs temporarily solved

t/Ae Spectator 


Well fans, here we are back again to give you what news there is to 
give in the sports world on the L. V. C. campus. We've been away for quite 
awhile, but we feel that perhaps there are a few items to be mentioned that 
could not be discussed in formal write-ups. 

Before we say any more, it would greatly benefit all concerned if some 
of the hecklers found hereabouts would cease their derogatory remarks. If 
the gentlemen in mind feel that they can do a better job, they are welcome 
to the task of trying to dig up sport scoops on this campus, and reporting 

And now to continue. The high scoring Seniors of the Men's Dorm had 
copped the title in their league and met the Sophs, winners in the Day Stud- 
ent League. We witnessed the affairs and must say the boys did some clever 
kneeing, elbowing, and pushing, even if they didn't play good basketball. 

Continuing on our jaunt about the campus, we encountered Coach Ullery 
and his boys dashing about in the mud having a grand old time. Our chief 
interest lay in the hurlers and receivers. In the hurling department there 
was reliable Frank Kuhn, the captain, who will undoubtedly shoulder the 
major portion of the pitching assignments. We saw Bob Weiler tossing them 
in. Bob was quite an effective relief hurler last season, not quite making 
the starting grade. A freshman, Russo, was also taking his turn heaving 
them in. If he develops into a starting hurler he will be an answer to Coach 
Ullery's prayers. The coach is in dire need of a good twirler, a southpaw, 
if such were available, but we fear the worst. 

On the receiving list, leading contender right now, in our opinion, is 
Barney Bentzel. Bentzel was a catcher for a number of years, but he had 
a little difficulty; however, now he's back again and he looks pretty good. 
Bill Donmoyer is a likely candidate. Ed Schillo might, get the job because of 
his hitting strength. 

That brings us to the schedule, which, at the present writing, is a sorry 
affair. In the first place there is no May Day game. It seems that parties 
concerned changed the date of May Day, but never gave a thought to the 
baseball game, or the tennis match either. As a result, Athletic Director 
Frock has been unable to contact a team for the day of May 10. The situation 
may he remedied later, at least we hope so. 

One new opponent catches our eye, and that is Elizabethtown College. 
This out l it usually turns out good teams, but the Valley should develop 
enough talent to beat them. Incidentally, if a May Day game should be 
scheduled that would mean four games in one week. Where the pitchers are 
going to come from, not even Coach Ullery knows. 

Well that ends our bit of news for this week and so to do away with 
further boredom of our reader we bid you adieu. 

of the attack and began to tire just 
before the whistle was blown announ- 
cing the intermission with 27-19 score 
in their favor. 

A revamped line-up enabled the 
Dorm team to gradually sneak up on 
the Sophs and trail the latter outfit 
31-29 as the fourth chukker began. 
Grow and Conley each scored two 
goals in the final chapter to the three 
garnered by Uhrich and Little. The 
last half was a haphazard affair as 
the referee allowed the game to get 
out of control and almost left the 
court to the ball players to do as they 

In overtime period a duel develop- 
ed between Myers and Grow as each 

threw in two baskets. The payoff came 
when Bentzel dunked a set shot with a 
minute and half to go. The Sophs 
tried vainly to get the ball up the 
floor but were blocked in each effort 
by the hardy band of Seniors. 

"Porky" Grow led the victorious 
Dorm champs with 19 points on 9 
field goals and a shot from the charity 
stripe. Conley assisted bis team mate 
with a total of !> counters. Myers was 
the big gun lor the Sophs by slam- 
ming I!) markers through the rim. 
Uhrich found time to score live field 
goals while turning in an. outstanding 
game in the backeourt. The second 
game in the playoff series is scheduled 
for early next week. 

// Chivalry 

Has Died 

by Alf Noise 

After a small deed of common cour- 
tesy or generous favor done for a 
gratified co-ed, that whispered ques- 
tion relating to the graveyard state 
of chivalry is inevitable. That soft 
whispering of a single co-ed rises in 
volume to a murmur that deserves 
an audition, when joined by the echo 
of many fair voices. To this justi- 
fied murmuring one responds that 
chivalry "is not dead, but sleeping," 
like the beautiful daughter of Jairus 
whom Christ awakened from the slum- 
ber of death. 

Subjecting oneself to criticism, it 
can he said that many women have 
aided in drugging chivalry with sap- 
en lie powder. When they permit the 
golden raiment of womanhood to slip 
horn their bodies with so little care, 
they are contributing to the dilemma 
of their own sex. To be less literary 
and more explicit, the women who 
join the vulgar ranks of common men 
and "swear like troopers" and drink 
like fish; who becoming nothing short 
of perverted thick-tongued drunken 
babes and scantily dressed "dumb bun- 
nies" with their "goo-goo" vocabu- 
laries are responsible for the degrada- 
tion of womanhood to the state where 
those people of the animal herd desire 
to keep it. 

The key to the heart of chivalry is 
iii the hand of every woman; and al- 
though it may not unlock the valves 
of a universal return, it will open 
an individual valve of satisfaction. To 
those girls who have escaped the mire 
of degradation and proudly wear the 
unsoiled cloak of womanhood, one can 
say that the multitude of fellowmen 
who come her way can not help but 
respect her true beauty. But to those 
girls who persist in their ways of vo- 
cal amplifications, anatomy exposi- 
tions, profanity, and vulgar story ad- 
vocation, and everyman petting mani- 
kins, the tale is truly sorrowful. If 
they would only remember that they 
lower themselves to the rank of the 
easy-come-type cf girl. The type of 
girl men cast aside like a broken doll 
when their satisfied pleasures become 
tired of her nothingness. Barbarism 
might easily be considered the oppo- 
site of chivalry, and women have the 
free choice of defining their positions 
ami expecting the consequences. 

Although in my expounding, men 
have seemed to escape, it is certainly 
not. because we are without guilt. 
Many men have welcomed the dormant 
state of chivalry because of the ex- 
pounded effort required to be a gentle- 
man as compared to the easy-go life 
spent in ignorant commonness. How- 
ever, one shall not go further into this 
phase of the subject, but rather re- 
turn to the original whispering ques- 
tion. No, girls, chivalry is not dead, 
but lying like a kindly slumbering 
giant at your feet, who can easily be 
aroused from his dreams by the soft 
white hand of a modern lady placed 
upon his massive brow. Yes, girls, 
tell the world in your lauded actions 
that ladies still exist and that gentle- 
men are still preferred ; and one shall 
gladly say that chivalry is not only 
living, but crushing into submission 
all those elements which would de- 
grade all that is good, holy, and pure 
in mankind.

Dances And Directors Chosen 

Rehearsals for the annual May Day 
„ te w hich is to be held on the Leba-

are well underway, having been start- 
ed two weeks ago. At present the 
dances are being taught during phy- 
sical education classes. Later on prac-

Snavely Speaks 

To L. V. Alumni 

Harrisburg Group Holds 
Reorganization Banquet 

Mr. Carl Snavely, an alumnus of 
Lebanon Valley College, class of '15, 
and present head football coach at 
Cornell University, was the main 
speaker at the annual spring banquet 
and reorganization meeting of the 
Lebanon Valley College Alumni Asso- 
ciation of Greater Harrisburg, held 
on Saturday, March 29, at the Her- 
shey Community Dining Room. 

Mr. Snavely spoke with reverence 
regarding the advantages afforded by 
the small college with religious af- 

He said, "Advantages at Lebanon 
Valley CftfltagO are equal to any in the 
country. The small college, with its 
personal contacts, lias many advan- 
tages over the larger school. The 
close affiliation between a church and 
a school, such as Lebanon Valley has, 
is a mighty important factor in a 
sc hool's background. 

"On the whole our boys (graduates 
of Lebanon Valley College) have been 
doing pretty well. I meet quite a num- 
ber of them in different parts of the 
country, and they seem to be doing as 
well as any of the boys of any other 

Appearing on the same program 
were Dr. Clyde A. Lynch, President 
of Lebanon Valley College, Dr. E. M. 
Balsbaugh, Professor of Education, 
and Mr. Jerome "Jerry" Frock, head 
football coach at Lebanon Valley Col- 

The retiring president, Mr. E. E. 
Knauss, presided over Saturday 
night's affair before handing over his 
office to the organizations new presi- 
dent, Mr. William Jacks, principal of 
the Paxtang High School. Serving 
with Mr. Jacks for the ensuing year 
are: Mr. Max 0. Snyder, vice presi- 
dent; Miss Margaret Weaver, record- 
ing secretary; Mrs. Paul Erb, corre- 
sponding secretary; and Mrs. Mar- 
garet Kern, treasurer. 

Morning Service 
Features Slides 

On Friday morning, April 4, at six 
o'clock, an inspirational Easter ser- 
vice will be held in the college cha- 
pel under the direction of the Y. W. 
C. A. and Y. M. C. A. A feature of 
the program will be the showing of 
hand-tinted slides, copies of paintings 
of such artists as Hoffmann, Jalobert, 
Schmitz, Wehle, Lisko, Raphael, De- 
frezzer, Lippi, Ano, and Ruben. Rich- 
ard Rodes will be the narrator. Spe- 
cial music will be given by a male 
quartette. Virginia Goodman will pre- 
side at the organ. 


Mendelssohn's "Elijah" 
Is On Festival Program 

Oratorio To Be Given 
By Chorus and Orchestra 

"Elijah," the oratorio of Mendels- 
sohn that is to be give*l Friday, April 
'if), during the Annual Music Festival 
of the Lebanon Valley Conservatory, 
is considered one of the three most 
popular of the larger choral works. 
It ranks with Bach's B Minor Mass 
and Handel's Messiah which was giv- 
en here last year. 

In the "Elijah," we can see the in- 
fluence of Handel and Bach upon 
Mendelssohn. The telling effectiveness 
of Handel's massive choruses is re- 
flected in "Elijah" by such choral out- 
bursts as "Help! Lord!" Mendelssohn 
is always a master of form, effective 
polophony, and colorful instrumenta- 
tion, but in "Elijah" reaches emotion- 
al depths not found in his other works, 
and refutes the charge that his music 
is too facile and shallow to attract 
present-day listeners. 

The work is pot in strict oratorio 
form, in fact it almost approaches an 
opera in its dramatic power. It is not 
just a series of arias and choruses, 
but contains a narrative, the story of 
Elijah found in the Old Testament. 
The oratorio contains many solo and 
ensemble episodes which must have 
seemed startling to that first audi- 
ence; for example; the bold opening 
of the oratorio with Elijah's prophetic 
words as a recitative. 

"Elijah" is divided into two sec- 
tions, the first richer in dramatic ac- 
tion. It contains the following four 
scenes: The Thirsting People, The 
Healing of the Widow's Son, The 
Priests of Baal, and the Miracle of 
the Rain. The second section is more 
lyric and contemplative in character 
and reaches a powerful climax in the 
scenes describing: The Advent of the 
Lord, Elijah Ascending to Heaven, 
and The Prophecy. 

For the interpretation of the ora- 
torio, we find the following quotation 
in a letter of Mendelssohn's to a 
friend — "The dramatic element should 
predominate. . . The personages should 
act and speak as if they were living 
beings — for Heaven's sake let them 
not be a musical picture, but a real

Critics' Commendations Greatly 
Overbalance Adverse Statements 

Philo-Clio Play 
"The White Steed" 

As :ts selection for Philo-Clio anni- 
versary play, the committee has cho- 
sen "The White Steed" by Paul Vin- 
cent Carroll, one of the younger Irish 
writers. This play will be the first 
Irish Renaissance play to be present- 
ed on campus. It is based on one of 
the folk legends of Ireland, the story 
of Niom, the goddess who, meeting 
the mortal Ossian, lifted him to a 
place beside her on her white steed 
and carried him away to the Land of 
Eternal Youth, where for three hun- 
dred years they lived an idyllic love 
life. Then Ossian became restless and 
Niom sent him back to the land for 
which he hungered, warning him not 
to dismount or touch the earth. But 
Ossian, disgusted with the efforts of 
the little black men whom he found 
infesting the land of his birth, sought 
to impress them with his strength, 
fell from the white steed and, on 
touching the earth, withered away 
from his accumulated years. "The 
White Steed" is not a dramatization 
of the legend, but rather it is the story 
of a modern Niam's attempt to make 
a man of a vacillating Ossian of to-

noon by Director George Struble. The

The Administration. 

by Koontz - Schindel 
On Friday night in Engle Hall Del- 
phian and Kalozetean members and 
their guests witnessed in the societies' 
production Outward Bound what has 
been fitly called the dramatic high- 
light of the year to date. The ap- 
>lause of the gratifyingly large audi- 
ence attested to the play's success. 

In retrospect, it is surprising how 
a play of such length and of such un- 
relieved severity of atmosphere as 
Outward Bound could so well hold the 
attention of the audience. Credit here 
is due undoubtedly to the consistently 
high standard of acting. It is impos- 
sible to say that anyone stole the 
play, but top honors must go to Frank 
rihenk, not only for his consistently 
understanding interpretation of a ma- 
jor role, but also for his realistic por- 
trayal ni two particularly difficult in- 
stances. His handling of the drunker, 
scene in the first act, and of the hys- 
teria scene in the second were two of 
the most convincing in the play. 

The appearance, mannerisms, and 
even the bearing of Joe Carr in the 
part of The Examiner all played to- 
gether to make the audience feel per- 
fectly at ease. He portrayed perfect- 
ly in his role the author's admixture 
of the human with a touch of the di- 

It is difficult to rank the order of 
excellence of the other members of 
the cast, but surely Betty Minnich's 
Cockney accent, Bud Boltz's prayer 
scene, and the final despair of Feme 
Poet are worthy of commendation. In 
her initial appearance on the L. V. 
stage Martha Wilt showed the hope- 
ful quality of poise, but what would 
otherwise have been an admirable in- 
terpretation was marred by several 
character breaks. 

It is hard to judge Shay's perform- 
ance. We cannot decide whether Sut- 
ton Vane or Shay made the character 
of the half-way a little too dead.

Philo Anniversary 
Plans Near Completion 

Plans for the Philokosmian Anni- 
versary are proceeding at a rapid rate 
and are nearing completion. Johnny 
Dressier, the anniversary president, 
has announced that Galen Hall has 
been selected and obtained for the 
second successive year. This hotel, sit- 
uated on a hillside near Wernersville, 
will offer a change of scenery from 
that of the other large dances this 
year. According to the anniversary 
president, Jack Adams' Orchestra 
from Reading has been secured to 
supply the music during the dance. 

The committees have already or- 
dered the favors, invitations, pro- 
grams, and meal, the last of which 
will be every bit as excellent as last 
year's feast.

In old Norse mythology the charac- 
ter of Balder finds a significant place. 
His death and ultimate return are set 
apart as days of celebration. By the 
death of Balder the Norsemen meant 
the fading of the flowers, the short- 
ening days and the general signs of 
decay. What they celebrated in the 
return of Balder was the general re- 
surrection of nature, the return of the 
migratory birds and the spontaneous 
outburst of song and joy — the con- 
quest of life over death. With the com- 
ing of the Christian era, this same 
message has been revitalized by the 
addition of faith and is now celebrat- 
ed as Easter. 

In these days of war and unrest 
the hopes of Easter seem to some peo- 
ple merely to be wishful thinking. 
Life is a biological phenomenon — a 
material combination. Personality is 
explained by psychological pattern 
reactions. We are merely organized 
matter reacting to an environment. 
When the physical machinery ceases 
to act and death results, a wrecked 
machine is the only thing remaining. 
The theme of this school of thought 
is: "All hope abandon, ye who enter- 
here. " 

However, there are some forms of 
energy that pour through matter 
without disturbing it, as the radio 
impulses that pass through a stone 
wall, so faith, courage and hope pass 
through our material organization 
without disturbing our physical reac- 
tions. These forces are not stopped 
by physical death. 

The message of Easter for disillu- 
sioned college students, for soldiers in 
war-torn areas, for all is still one of 
hope and faith in the triumph of good 
over evil. 


youth < Jo youth 

by Alf Noise 

A recent issue of the Oberlin Col- 
lege publication bearing the pervert- 
ed views of a pretty co-ed columnist 
on marriage, love and sex brought 
her to the limelights when she was 
attacked by the clergy, who denounc- 
ed her writings as unadulterated filth. 
Although your columnist's views will 
not merit an A. P. wirephoto or news- 
paper headlines, his satisfaction lies 
in being able to write a somewhat 
fired retaliation in defense of the sac- 
redness of marriage as viewed in 
humble youth. 

One of our great troubles today 
lies in the romantic illusions which 
have blindfolded truth and guided fal- 
lacy. Too many of us receive our 
teaching about marriage from sugges- 
tive and emotion provoking plays, 
novels and magazines. In our desired 
ignorance we easily forget that the 
literary artist is selecting the "box 
office" theme or the "big seller" plot. 
If for example we are to judge all 
married life from the popular liter- 
ary portrayals, one is led to surmise 
that all marriages are a failure or 
that in real life the triangle phase is 

America is certainly not following 
in the footsteps of her fearless found- 
ers whose men and women loved and 
toiled side by side in the beauty of 
the virgin land when she substitutes 
the marital views of Hollywood for 
those of her churches, or the lustful 
expositions of her press for those of 
holiness in the Bible. Let us not be 
deceived by those men who single out 
the unusual and the sensational for 
our entertainment without considera- 
tion ior our moral betterment. 

another 'pass word" of excuse to 
lu.c who would have us beiieve that 
their views abound in sound psycho- 
logical truisms is found in the term 
naturalism. With our present day 
biological information we have come 
to realize the qualities that men share 
with the lower orders. The unfortu- 
nate part about this biological intel- 
ligence is evidenced when certain can- 
ine-minded individuals seek to coun- 
sel us to surrender our topmost po- 
sition in the kingdom for that which 
we share with the lower orders. 

To live the life of impulse may do 
very well for an animal, but not for 
a human being whose intellect causes 
him to recognize all sorts of decen- 
cies, cultural pleasantry, and ideals. 
To gratify the love impulses promis- 
cuously means that one cannot have 
the better kind of love, the exclusive 
love which looks up, which shares re- 
sponsibility, which unites man and 
wife in a respectful comradeship. If 
we desire to live like civilized beings 
we cannot live in the ways of the so- 
called naturalism. It certainly would 
be an experiment worth the costly 
wrecks of human lives to force all 
who are responsible into a zoological 
garden of their own and observe their 
resulting views some time later. 

In our youth we should arm oursel- 
ves against the propaganda of Lucifer 
which presents all sorts of luring sug- 
gestions in its effort to destroy the 
state of life which Christ blessed at 
Cana. We should not permit our love 
to blind our intelligence in our rela- 
tions with one another, but rather 
wisely view all situations leading to 
the "union of lives for life." If the di- 
vorce courts flourish today, it is only 
because passion has superseded true 
love and intelligence. If we as col- 
lege students and future leaders of 
America make wrecks of our lives, 
how can we ever restore marriage to 
its sacramental position?

Stage Whispers 

To begin the column this 
think that we should congratu] 
lo and Delphian on their s ? 
play, "Outward Bound." It i g P h ^ 
the best play that we have se ^ ^ 
en here for a long time. Special" ^ 
tion is to be given to Betty Mi ^ 
for her very good Cockney in/ 11 "* 
tation of her role. . . Miss GiuT 
was heard to remark that T? eSp ' e 
Shenk made such a convincing 
that she is beginning to have ^ 
doubt as to his integrity, tyr e & ^ 
state here and now that Mr. She ^ 
attending a Christian institution^ 
George Grow, who made a very V ' 
"pompous old idiot," had very str 
ous objections to the little matter^" 
make-up. It isn't every day that° f 
man of his standing is forced to d 3 
the war paint for the little matte ^ 


a play. . . Then we think that special 
mention should be made of the p ra 
scene, the way in which Bud Boltz S 
it, and the way in which the audien". 
received it. And the additional b, 
rels go to all the other members of 
the cast,— Ralph Shay for the best 
performance of his career, Marth 
Wilt, Feme Poet, Dick Zentmeyer-! 
and then of course, there was J a 
Carr. He made such a hit with the 
audience that many of those who 
didn't know him asked who he was' 
so if that's an indication of talent' 
he's Hollywood-bound. 

It seems that I made quite a faux 
pas last week. The tickets that I 
spoke of were to "There Shall Be No 
Night" which will be given in Hershey 
by Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontaine. 
The date will be April 28. Prank 
Shenk still has three tickets to this 
performance. The mix-up was with 
the Harrisburg production of "Ah! 
Wilderness" which will be seventy-five 
cents, and which will be held on April 
17. So consider the mistake corrected. 

The three one-act plays have been 
selected for the next Wig and Buckle 
meeting, which will be held the first 
Thursday after Easter. Ellen Rup- 
persberger has selected "The Fallen 
Bough," a tragedy by Donlevy. The 
characters will be : Kate, Pete Geyer; 
Anne Hammond, the wife of Gerald, 
Mary Louise Clark; Dr. Jim Warren, 
her former sweetheart, Bob Weiler, 
Gerald, Anne's husband, Bruce Sen- 
ders ; and Dr. Warren, who was the 
former odctor of Gerald and who has 
come back to see him, also Bruce Sou- 
ders. The dual rale should be inter- 
esting to see. . . The second play is a 
comedy, "Low Bridge" by Gravett. 
This play is built around that fad that 
is fast taking our campus by storm, 
bridge. The characters in it will be. 
Janet Schoff as the flighty, socially 
ambitious hostess Myra; and Maria' 1 
Kreider and Ann Collins and

glue and White girls gained an easy 
l9 .point lead over a slower Shippens- 
burg team. The final score was 26-7, 
with half the points to Bobby Herr's 

The second game served to indicate 
that the first triumph was no mere 
gjjeak of luck, but the result of team- 
work and practice. Again Lebanon 
Valley girls meted out defeat to Bell 
Telephone team, to the tune of 34-13. 
flerr and Klopp shared scoring hon- 
ors with ten points apiece. That the 
guard section was unusually strong 
in both games is concluded from the 
low scores to which opposing forwards 
were held. 

Lebanon Valley's annual Waterloo, 
Elizabethtown College, came next on 
the schedule. As usual, they proved 
hard nuts to crack, and L. V. girls 
met their first defeat, by a three-point 
margin. This was the closest game 
E-town played against L. V. within 
the last half decade. A Frosh, Ginnie 
Bernhard, came to the front in this 
game, racking up seven of the losers' 
points. Pete Geyer held the winners' 
star guard to a low of eight points. 

The Freshman girls of L. V. and 
Shippensburg met on Annville High 
School's floor to battle to a score of 
15-11, L. V.'s favor. This fourth game 
of the season gave the youngsters of 
our college an opportunity to display 
their talents. DeLene Yocum's per- 
formance had a promising look, and 
Wilt turned on her usual spectacular 
guard play. 

The game following the Frosh bat- 
tle was played on Albright's floor. A 
v ery close game ended in a 20-19 score 
wi th the Blue and White girls coming 
°ut on top. Jane Stabley played an 
unusually good game on this occasion. 

Basketball Play Day was booked 
nex t, and on that day L. V. met de- 
fea t at the hands of Cedar Crest with 
a score of 23-17. But victory again

Food Map of Europe as of Today 

Spring seems to have definitely 
come to the campus of Lebanon Val- 
ley College, and the lads with even an 
ounce of athletic blood in their sys- 
tem are out loosening up in some 
form of recreation — even though it 
is a mere stroll to see what others 
are doing. Anyway that's our form 
of exercise, and that's the way we 
get our news. 

Although baseball is the main topic 
for discussion, another interesting 
form of sport occurred in the Alumni 
Gymnasium when the arbiters of the 
Dorm League and the Day Student 
League combined to tackle the cham- 
pion Sophomore in what some call 
basketball. The officials won, as they 
always do, 65-54. For the referees, it 
was Bill Gollam and Alex Rakow lead- 
ing the attack, while Ralph Mease, 
Harry Matala, and Wilmer Gingrich 
took joy in suppressing any uprisings 
that the Sophomores wished to ini- 
tiate. Jabber Shay was injected into 
the official's line-up in the last quar- 
ter. His awe was so great that he 
failed to display his floor-beating tac- 
tics and likewise disappointed th3 
crowd. Lefty Little, for the second 
year men, tossed up 24 markers to 
hold scoring honors for the day. 

Perhaps we underestimated the 
ability of Ed Schillo as a versatile 
baseball player. Last year he was an 
infielder and outfielder. This year he 
has tackled the catching position and 
from all indications is doing a good job 
of it. The last time we saw the squad 
Schillo and Bentzel were sharing the 
receiving burden. If Ed will but put 
his natural ability to advantage, he 
should get the job. 

While we're on the subject of base- 
ball, an old peeve rears its head again. 
Four years at this college, we've no- 
ticed the student reaction to athletic 
activities with interest. Just about 
everybody goes to the football garner 
because they think it's the right thing 
to do. Fewer people go to the basket- 
ball games unless the college is sport- 
ing a winning team, then more go. But 
when spring comes, and the lads go to 
the ball field on the day of a game, 
they consider the place jammed if 
there are more than twenty-five peo- 
ple there. On several occasions the 
only noise one could hear was the 
drone of the umpire's voice and a 
couple fellows from the other team 

The ball games are played on the 
nicest of days. The weather is fine. 
There is very little danger of catching 
a cold or of being drenched to the 
skin. Then why can't the students 
stroll out to the ball field, and join 
in the activities, by riding the oppos- 
ing pitcher, by urging the "Casey" of 
the team to slap one out to the fence, 
and by using all the typical language 
of the baseball world vociferously? 
The affair is not a funeral, it's a ball 
game. There are seats out at the field 
for the weary. For those that like to 
roll on the ground, there is plenty of 
room. We would greatly appreciate it 
if you people would just stop to think 
it over and see what you can do about 
it. You don't suppose the Glee Club 
would sing to an empty house, or that 
the band would play before a deserted 
chapel, or even that the good rever- 
ends would preach before a non-exis- 
tent congregation? Then why should 
you expect the baseball team to try 
to win ball games for empty bleach- 

You figure it out. 




The starvation areas of Europe can be seen at a glance, above. 
This map will now darken from month to month as, in many 
countries, the last remaining food stocks reach exhaustion. 

New York (Special) —All Eu- 
rope is on short rations. Only tiny 
Portugal still commands a normal 
food supply. Before the first of 
the next harvests can be reaped, 
five months must elapse. In some 
countries, remaining food stocks 
will have been exhausted long 
before, when conditions of slow 
starvation which already exist 
will become actual famine. More- 
over, in several European coun- 
tries the harvest covers only a 
few months consumption. 

The above map has been drawn 
to bring the threatened areas into 
relief. As may be seen at a glance, 
the British Isles, Germany, Italy 
and the Balkans, although all on 
rations, are not in danger. But the 
little, western democracies, always 
dependent on overseas supplies 
and now cut off by the blockade, 
are already on a semi-starvation 

Darkest, immediate spots in the 
picture are Belgium and Poland 
(the latter because of war devas- 
tation and partitioning). Here, 
actual famine already prevails. 
People are dying of sheer hunger. 
But Spain, France, Holland, Nor- 

way and Finland are not far be- 
hind. The above map will now 
darken quickly from month to 
month. The terrible food emer- 
gency in Europe, so long forecast 
by food experts, is now but a step 

Spain may be able to get some 
help from the Argentine. In the 
case of the other countries, how- 
ever, their main hope seems to be 
the United States. Like the Ar- 
gentine, the United States not 
only holds large, surplus carry- 
overs of foodstuffs of which it 
would be glad to get rid, but each 
one of these starving countries 
holds in this country frozen dol- 
lar balances ample to pay for the 
food they need. Belgium, alone, 
has several hundred million dol- 
lars in assets here. It is then pri- 
marily a question whether it can 
be arranged to pass this food 
through the blockade if, at the 
European end, it can be taken in 
control by a tight, neutral agency 
which will supervise its distribu- 
tion to non-belligerent, civilian 
populations only — and a guaran- 
tee that it will not fall into other 

"Outward Bound" 
Meets Success 

(Continued from Page 1) 

The subdued attitude of the suicid- 
al young couple as well achieved until 
it carried over to the tone of their 
voices. The fact that the audience 
could not hear their conversation in 
the first act almost destroyed the con- 
ception of time upon which the play 
was based. Although weakness is a 
recognized character trait of suicides, 
still there must be a certain perverted 
strength that wasn't evidenced by this 
couple. All through the play Zent- 
meyer maintained his indecisive and 
dazed character for which he does de- 
serve commendation. 

George Grow, who also made his 
debut in Outward Bound, was, we 
fear, somewhat beyond his depth in 
the part of Lingley the harried fi- 
nancier. His appearance suited the 
role to perfection, but his vague ges- 
tures and disconnected delivery, his 
indecisive manner were hardly char- 
acteristic of the typical big-business 

The societies had a particularly 
happy choice in Outward Bound, for 
they could devote all their energies 
to the construction of the single set. 
Credit for an extremely realistic and 
attractive lounge goes to Olenchuck, 
Wilkialis, and Silliman.

Lefty Little and Ralph Shay were 
crowned as the new champs in the 
Day Students Doubles Tournament by 
virtue of a 21-6, 22-20 victory over 
the dark horse team of Ulrich and 

Little trouble was experienced by 
the new champs in the initial gamo, 
but Ulrich and Wise put up a terrific 
struggle before bowing in the second 
game. Shay and Little advanced into 
the finals by defeating Youse and 
Boltz and Bamberger and DeHufl' 
with the loss of only one game while 
Ulrich and Wise defeated Rakow and 
Snyder and the upset team of Morey 
and Reber. 

The new champs are eager to keep 
in trim and have issued a challenge to 
any team in defense of their laurels. 

Struble's supervision deserves laurels 
for producing a play of unusually 
high calibre. The atmosphere was 
maintained throughout. Our only 
criticism is that the action lagged dur- 
the first scene of the last act. 

In summary the high character of 
the acting, and the able direction 
made Outward Bound superior enter- 

Resume 7 Of Day 
Student League 

The schedule in the basketball 
league of the Men Day Students was 
completed a few short weeks ago, but 
a review of the season was delayed 
until this issue in order to do full jus- 
tice to the article. The championship 
was wen, of course, by the high step- 
ping Sophomore aggregation which 
dominated play in the league since the 
Christmas holidays by gaining nine 
straight victories and the right to 
meet the Dorm League champs in the 
inter-mural playoffs. 

The. Sophs dropped two of their 
first three games away back in Decem- 
ber to the Juniors and the Frosh. 
Since then, however, the Sophs dis- 
played excellent team-work and used 
a zone defense effectively to halt their 
opponents' drives for the basket. The 
Frosh team started slowly and proved 
easy meat for everyone until the first 
year men nipped the Sophomores. Af- 
ter the battle the yearlings placed a 
capable group on the floor backed by 
a flock of valuable reservists. 

The Junior quartet showed their 
heels to everyone at the start by tak- 
ing the other 3 classes into camp in 
short order. After this whirlwind be- 
ginning, the luckless Juniors were 
able to cop only 2 out of the remain- 
ing 9 games and dropped from the 
t >oie position to the second rung on 
Lhe ladder. The upperclassmen team 
of Sen iocs had plenty of height, but 
lacked a game good enough to keep 
Lhem in the money. The I'ou rth-ycar 
men took their initial contest with the 
Frosh and defeated the Juniors twice 
late in the season for their 3 wins of 
the year. 

In glancing at the figures it is found 
that the Juniors gained the highest 
total number of points from their 
third place position. The Sherk-coach- 
ed boys dropped 568 points into the 
hoop to their opponents' 527 in prov- 
ing to be the best offensive outfit on 
the floor. The champs ranked in sec- 
ond place with 564 counters, but were 
judged the best defensive club by hold- 
ing their rivals to 438 points. The 
figures for the Frosh are slightly bal- 
anced in favor of their opponents' 
488-487. The Seniors were outscored 
592 to 326 in their 12 contests in 
league play. The Sophs took hign 
game scoring laurels with a total of 
85 against the Seniors.

In the individual scoring column 
Shay, big gun in the front court for

goals from afield and 13 buckets from 
the foul line. "Lefty" Little, lanky 
Sophomore star, was next in line in 
gaining 187 counters while leading the 
champs to victory upon numerous oc- 
casions. Bunched behind the leaders 
were Boltz, Rakow, and Metro. Shay 
also took total field goal honors and 
scored high individual game total with 
44 points. Boltz, the latter's running- 
mate and standout performer in the 
backcourt, dropped 21 shots from the 
charity stripe to lead the scoring in 
that department.

ter of the Old Testament; and the 
contemplative and pathetic element, 
which you desire, ought to be entirely 
conveyed to our understanding by the 
words and in the mood of the acting- 

Mendelssohn began to plan for the 
work as early as 1837, but it was not 
completed until August 11, 1846. The 
first performance, August 26, 1846, at 
Birmingham was declared a marvel- 
ous success according to the London 
"Times" — "Never was there a more 
complete triumph — never a more thor- 
ough and speedy recognition of a 
great work of art." Mendelssohn had 
arrived in Birmingham only three 
days before the concert, the earlier 
rehearsals being conducted by Mosch- 
eles. In the scant 72 hours allotted 
him, Mendelssohn worked miracles, 
and had his reward — the performance 

was the crowning success of his life- 
Several revisions were made in the 
score and during the spring of 
Mendelssohn conducted seven P er ' 
formances of the revised version 1 
England. Six months after the last 
of these he died. 

The rendition of Mendelssohn's ora- 
torio "Elijah," by the chorus and or- 
chestra under the direction of P r0 
fessor E. P. Rutledge will certainly 
be an outstanding musical event 011 
our calendar. Tickets for this Vf 
formance will be 50 cents. Tickets » 
the Band and Glee Club Concert 

Thursday evening, April 24, 

will be 

35 cents. A Combination ticket t 
both concerts may be purchased 
75 cents. See any member of the 
servatory for tickets. 

At a class meeting held on 
nesday, the Juniors selected f° r 
their prom Jack Adams and 
orchestra of Reading. 

The tickets for the dance will e 
sold at $1.50.

Junior Prom 
Is Planned As 
Spring Spree 

Everybody's planning for the Jun- 
ior Prom on Friday, May 2, at 8:00 
P. M., at the Hershey Park Ball 
Room, Hershey, where Jack Adams 
and his Orchestra will provide the 
rythmic background for the Terpsi- 
chorean enthusiasts. 

And who is Jack Adams? Jack 
Adams is one of America's up and 
coming band men. His orchestra plays 
no stock arrangements. The twelve 
instrumentalists of this organization 
play the arrangements of their leader 1 
who has had no difficulty in selling his 
deviations from the "canned arrange- 
ments" to some of America's better 
named bands. Besides this outstand- 
ing feature, Jack Adams and his Or- 
chestra boast the services of two ex- 
cellent vocalists. 

The Junior Prom will be the scene 
of one of the greatest promenades ev- 
er produced at a Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege social. This number of the pro- 
gram is being skillfully managed by 
a member of the Lebanon Valley Con- 
servatory of Music. 

According to E. Carroll McFerren, 
Junior Prom Leader, "all committees 
are functioning." There are posters 
all around Annville, Lebanon, Her- 
shey and Harrisburg, not to mention 
the more rural sections of this local- 
ity. The whole Junior Class is back- 
ing this annual affair to make it "the 
best ever." 

Tickets for this gigantic event are 
available for the lenient sum of $1.50 
per couple from any of the following 
members of the ticket committee: 
George Ziegler, Frank Zimmerman, 
Joe Carr, Betty Foster, Martha Da- 
vies, Virginia Goodman, Donald Sta 
ley, Theodore Youse, Ralph Mease, 
Herbert Curry, Viola Snell, Robert 
Weiler, Robert Bieber, Carl Sherk, 
Richard Zentmoyer. 

Biology Club 
Hears Seifriz 

Dr. William Seifriz, head professor 
of Botany at the University of Penn- 
sylvania, was the guest speaker at the 
Biology Club meeting held last Thurs- 
day evening, April 17. Dr. Seifriz is 
well known all over the world, having 
written a monograph and several 
books on the subject of protoplasm. 
His lecture on the "Flowing of Proto- 
plasm" was illustrated with the aid 
of motion pictures and slides. 

As highlights in the lecture were 
points on the elasticity of protoplasm, 
the alternating flow of protoplasm, 
and the work done in anesthesia. In 
relation to this last work the contrast 
between good and harmful anesthe- 
tics was shown by the movies illustra- 
ting the disintegration of protoplasm 
after administering of a harmful sub- 

After the lecture, the annual sur- 
prise birthday party for Dr. Derick- 
son was given, at which time ice 
cream, cake, and other refreshments 
were served. Dr. Derickson was pre- 
sented with a brief case by the Biology

Bible Story Presented 
In Mendelssohn's "Elijah" 

This week-end the Lebanon Valley 
Conservatory of Music will hold its 
annual Music Festival in Engle Hall. 
Thursday night the Band and Glee 
Club will present the program and 
Friday night a chorus of 80 with or- 
chestra and organ accompaniment un- 
der the direction of Professor E. P. 
Rutledge, will sing "Elijah" by Men- 

The Thursday night concert will be 
a duplicate of that given in Harris- 
burg on Sunday. 

The story of "Elijah" briefly is as 
follows : 

PART 1— Because King Ahab and 
his wife Jezebel encourage the wor- 
ship of Baal, Elijah appeared before 
them, saying — "It shall rain no more 
in this land until I command it," and 
though the people of the land cried 
out for mercy a great drought fell up- 
on the country. An angel appeared 
before Elijah and commanded him to 
hide near a brook, and later sent him 
to a widow woman who had an afflict- 
ed son. Elijah cured this son of his 
illness. After three years of drought 
Elijah again appeared before Ahab 
and proposed a contest between him- 
self and the priests of Baal: An ox 
would be placed on an altar; the 
priests of Baal would first call on 
their God to light the fire, and then 
Elijah would call on his God. Which- 
ever God answered should then be pro- 
claimed the God of Israel. So the 
priests called on Baal — they pleaded

Taylor and Freeland 
Give Joint Recital 

Myron Taylor, tenor, and Merl 
Freeland, pianist, assisted by the Col- 
lege Orchestra, D. Clark Carmean, 
conductor, will appear in a faculty 
recital in Engle Hall Thursday, May 
1, at eight o'clock. This "two in one" 
program will replace the former sep- 
arate recitals by these artists. 

Mr. Taylor, whose share of the pro- 
gram includes groups of Italian, Ger- 
man, and English numbers and finds 
its climax in an aria with orchestral 
accompaniment, states: "I'm very 
happy to appear on a program with 
such a fine piano player as Mr. Free- 
land and under such a fine conductor 
as Professor Carmean. I've sung with 
professional orchestras that don't play 
the accompaniment as well." 

Mr. Freeland also appears in num- 
bers alone and with the orchestra, 
which he says "does exceptionally 
good work and an excellent job of ac-

la chivalerie 

In spite of the varied achievements 
of the modern woman, in spite of the 
successful womens' rights movement, 
in spite of the so-called "enlightened 
age", one adage, old in Bible times, 
still carries the ring of truth — "wo 
man is the weaker vessel." The more 
aggressive of us bow our frizzled 
heads in sorrowful admittance of the 
fact; the rest, less affected by the 
single standard, transmit this defect 
into their strongest weapon. It is hard 
to say of just what this weaknes con- 
sists. In view of facts, I refuse to hail 
man as intellectually superior, and I 
doubt if even the most stalwart foot- 
baller would be gratified if I under- 
rated male superiority as purely phy- 
sical. No, there is more to it than that. 
There must be something in the psy- 
chology of the male animal that gives 
both the crassest brute and the cul- 
tured gentleman that innate sense of 
superiority v/hich few women have 
cared to challenge. 

How does women's inferiority con- 
nect with chivalry? In this one re- 
spect: where man leads woman will 
follow; man sets the pace, the weaker 
vessel must meet it. The girl is always 
expected to adjust her personality, her 
actions, her very ideals to fit those of 
the chivalrous knight who has con- 
descended to spend time in her com- 
pany. It is fortunate for the man that 
Cleopatra was not the only woman 
blessed (or cursed) with "infinite 

To further this, my defense of the 
modern girl, I will have to resort to 
a frankness that will probably offend 
those in my own camp, but this is no 
time for feminine caginess. Women 
do dress, act, and think in the manner 
they hope will best please the man of 
their choice or mankind in general. 
The things that you dislike most in us, 
boys, are those very things that you 
have instigated. Our conduct in the

jazz notes 

by Maurie Erdman 

Concluding the year let's give a 
word of praise to a fast rising band 
coming out of the nation's capital led 
and managed by Charley Spivak. 

The band uses five reeds, six brass 
in a 3-3 arrangement and the old re- 
liable four rhythm. With a dance 
style ranking among the best, we find 
the leader using a sweet trumpet for 
the smooth stuff. Vocalizing on bal- 
lads is Harry Stevens while Ginger 
Maylen sings in swing. Outstanding 
example of his well rounded library 
is "Intermezzo," the best arrange- 
ment of the piece as yet heard. Reeds 
follow the Miller lines but an excep- 
tional brass section turns to the short, 
choppy and rich styles of Woody Her- 

With the band only a little more 
than a year old, it has risen amazingly 
in its short pre-fame period. Every 
man in the band is young and we 
wouldn't be surprised if many of them 
are still ineligible for the draft. In 
the past year the band has been 
playing at many of the most famous 
i-pots in the country. 

Recently finishing a 3-weeks run at 
Paramount he and his band have been 
playing a series of one night stands 
including the Prom at the University 
of Tennessee. In four more weeks 
Spivak will return to New York to 
take up summer residence in the Glen 
Island Casino. Stand by for future 
announcements for this group will 
bear watching. Don't miss him when 
he starts his broadcast from Glen Is- 
land, because here is one of the un- 
and-comers for the very very near fu- 

"The Lost Chord" .... In this case it was a lost college prexy .... To 
explain — last Saturday night John Lynch, upon returning home, was un- 
able to locate Dr. and Mrs. Lynch and Foxy .... By 3 A. M. he was so 
alarmed he called the State Police who started a systematic search . . . . 
But to no avail .... There was no news at all, in fact, until last Sunday 
when the prodigals returned (without the aid of the police) from a quiet 
trip into Western Pennsylvania .... 

"March Militaire" .... On Tuesday night last The Army put in its ap 
pearance at the L. V. Library .... Strange that when giving out instruc 
tions for the momentous event Miss Myers should utter the words, "Now, 
girls, we must all be very discreet!" .... 

"Tales of the Vienna Woods*' .... Or Reminiscences of a Weekend at 
Mt. Gretna .... Men appearing during a West Hall week-end for the first 
time .... Skating party from which Polly Keller didn't recover .... Hep 
flump, Doris Carter's Jersey turtle, claiming a new home .... 

"Lohengrin" .... Although it's scarcely news anymore, everyone is 
still talking about the way the draft forced Mr. and Mrs. John H. Lynch III 
to announce their marriage of last July .... Congrats on keeping the 
secret so well, and best wishes by the score . . . . ' 

"The Children's Corner" .... North Hall balcony t'other night when 
several upperclassmen (chiefly Heminway, Shatto, Ehrhart and Koontz) 
used it for jumping rope and playing hop-scotch .... During the day it 
resembles a beauty parlor what with sun-bathing, plus all manner of beauty 
treatment a la brushes and creams .... You'd think the biology students 
never saw a girl in a bathing suit the way they gape .... Charwomen's 
Local No. 237 did a thorough and much-neeued clean-up job on Monday .... 

Fox-trot (Two-step to you!) .... So Sam Derrick thinks because he 
hasn't made the headlines his side-stepping with Mary Mehaffey hasn't 
been noticed! .... That's where he's oh, so wrong .... It's just that we 
hated to break it to Bunny .... Next time don't boast either behind our 
back or to our face, Sam! .... 

Theme With Variations .... Maurie Erdman with Jo Hammond .... 
Maurie Erdman with Martie Yeakle .... Jean Daugherty with Joe Carr .... 
Jean Daugherty with Chuck Newbaker .... Mary Liz Spangler with Frank 
Shenk .... Mary Liz Spangler with Hub Curry .... 

Sharps and Flats . . . .Eclectic Club-ers welcome-homed Tink Silvers, 
Jerry Novick, and Dick Kauffman for their Lancaster fling .... First ap- 
pearance of Dotty Schindel's B. M. O. C. (Big Man Off Campus in this 
case) .... Martha Crone spending the few sweet minutes before ten with a 

home-town lad lately Tippy and Smitty getting together lots .... 

Cutest constant couple on campus .... Janet Schopf and Walt Ebersole .... 
Eddie Creeger spending time at West Hall these days with Ruthie Graybill 
.... Ed Stansfield and Katy Dunkle not on speaking terms .... New tables 
in the dining-room, which are oh, so definitely "fixed" .... Juniors who 
didn't pay class dues excluded from classes to their intense regret! .... 
First swimmers of the year .... Jean Daugherty and Joe Carr .... I. R. 
C. newsreel leaving everybody in a mood .... John Rex appearing late for 
all his classes now that he's married .... Bets being laid as to how long 
the new wooden chairs in the M. I). S. R. will last .... Marlin Espenshade 
returning from a field trip without his shirt .... Betty Foster and Chuck 
Tyson exploring the potentialities of Platonic love .... 

'Star-Spangled Banner" .... Just as this indicates sign-off time on the 
wave lengths, so it does for this column .... I, Martha Jane Koontz, do 
hereby deelare, testify and affirm that I, alone, am totally responsible for 
everything that has appeared in this column .... My well-known johnnies- 
on-the-spot are in no way to blame, and any complaints should be made di- 
rectly to me .... I shall attempt to give complete satisfaction for any 
.supposed slight in any way the complaintant desires, as long as it's raspberry 
pies at twenty paces .... Seriously, it's all been in fun .... S'long you- 
all . . . . M. J

It appears that this issue bears 
final written utterances of senio^ ^ 
tributors. Not being exempt fro m 
classification, your preacher autr. 
joins the farewells and thanks 
those student readers Wno 


faithfully considered the worth 
his endeavors. 

When one reaches the second 
mester stage of his senior y ear ^ Se ~ 
naturally thinking, dreaming 0l . e . 1S 
vestigating that big world which K 
has studied and heard so much a h 
He has reached a point wher e T' 
doesn't know whether to express 
regret or laudation that college \ ' 
approach the terminal. His chara 
is almost completely molded andV* 
outlook on life is rather permanent 8 
He is subject to reminiscing f ' 
college days that have passed, and 
a mental scale he is bound to meat 
ure their personal contributions. &S 
If you are not in agreement with 
the fact that seniors have m an 
thoughts for the future cradled in a H 
sorts of feelings from cynicism and 
pessimism to optimism, think of the 
world we enter in June, all battered 
bruised and torn by war and hate. Our 
America is filled with opportunities 
in industry, commerce and profes- 
sions, but all the present glories are 
eclipsed by the shadow of Mars, who 
is responsible for the prosperity.' How 
long before we heed the battle call 
is but a matter of conjecture. Our 
young men have exceeded the million 
mark as the military forces continue 
to grow and draft numbers take them 
from our very midst. 

Thus, in a few short sentences, are 
our thoughts. But despite the fact 
that things do not seem so very bright, 
the student who retains Christian 
faith and hope is far better armed to 
meet the future than any mechaniz- 
ed field piece. Too many of us have 
turned our backs on God eespecially 
when we need Him to carefully guide 
our careless youthful feet. Does it 
not seem unfair that we should enjoy 
the modern presentations of sin and 
then when the crisis comes to flock 
to the feet of Our God and ask Him 
to spare us from the man made hor- 
rors ? If we live each day in His pleas- 
ure and train in His great army we 
can be assured that our future bur- 
dens will be much lighter to bear. 
Only in the sign of His Holy Cross 
we shall find victory for our lives and 
those of our fellow men. 

Stage Whispers 

The column this week will be in the 
nature of a swan song. In other 
words, after this week another indus- 
trious columnist will sit down at the 
last minute and dash off a few words 
of wisdom for the general public and 
the Thespians in particular to per use 
religiously every week. But I have en- 
joyed it and I am sorry to be mak 1 "^ 
my exit with this issue. 

The play to be given Mother's 
Week-end is "Wurzel-Flummei7» 
a one-act play by A. A. M' 1 ^' 
and it is to be directed by Jea« e 
Kalbach of "The Truth about Worn<^ 
fame. The cast is to be selected fr 

this P lay 

the two casts which were in 


in connection with the freshman 
lish class. It will include: John ., 8l y 
Fadden, Charlotte Harnish, & ' 
Elizabeth Grube, Bruce Souders, 
nard "Romeo" Rubin and Ju 
Moore. This is one of the most P 
ular of all one-act plays and wa * 
en here several years ago f° r 
coming. So let's bring our m0 
to the play, and let them see a ^ q{ 
pie of what we can do in the * ie

And so, thus endeth the last ^

came up and slopped a single into 
light, scoring Day with the fifth and 
winning run. 

Elizabethtown scored first in the 
fourth when they garnered three hits 
and two runs. Stauffer beat out an

The Valley garnered one tally in

In the sixth the Valley piled up

Seniors Top 
Dorm League 

Final results and standings of tha 
Men's Dormitory Basketball League 
have been somewhat late in getting 
into this department, but to do justice 
to all, the statistics shall be forthwith 

The Seniors captured the title and 
also the play-off game with the Sopho- 
more Day students. League standings 
are as follows: 

Won Lost Pet. 

Sr. 8 1 .888 

Frosh 7 2 .777 

Sophs 3 6 .333 

Juniors 9 .000 

The championship was in doubt un- 
til the final game of the season when 
the Seniors defeated the Frosh by a 
score of 55-30. The luckless Juniors 
were unable to win a single game. 

The high scorer of the year turned 
out to be Ralph Conley, sharp shoot- 
ing sparkplug of the Senior outfit. 
Conley scored 174 points in 9 games 
to post an average of 19.5 points per 
game. He was closely followed by 
Neidig of the Frosh quintet who dent- 
ed the hoops for 167 points in 8 
games. Neidig posted the best aver- 
age per game for the season with a 
20.8 point average. 

Other high scorers of the league 
were Smith of the Frosh with 155, 
"Porky" Grow, the back court star 
of the Seniors with 144 points in seven 
games; and Dick Beckner, the one 
man gang of the Sophs, with 119 

The Juniors failed to place one man 
in the first five ; but their best bet was 
Bob Guinivan who scored 112 points 
for a team which only scored 284 
points all year. 

L. V. C. Baseba 
Games With Gap 

The Lebanon Valley baseball team 
has benefitted materially by the near- 
ness of a military cantonment as 
learned in the past two weeks. But 
doubt as to the true value is being 
aroused from all quarters. 

It appears that several groups of 
khaki-clad boys made numerous trips 
to the campus to secure games with 
the college nine. Eight dates were 
finally agreed upon for games with 
teams representing the various com- 
panies of the 112th Infantry of the 
Pennsylvania National Guard called 
into federal service and now stationed 
at Indiantown Gap. The officers said 
that their men would be free to play 
at the local diamond by 4:00 p.m. 

Of the three contests scheduled for 
Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday of 
last week, only the third practice game 
came off. On the other occasions Coach 
Ullery had his aspirants on the field 
taking a few cracks at the plate with 
the willow and shagging "flies" so as 
to be ready to go when the soldier 
teams arrived. Uufortunately none 
did arrive and intra-squad games re- 
sulted. The Dutchmen really went to 
work in the unofficial game by lacing 
the visiting infantrymen 19-0, as Ul- 
lery shoved all his reserves into the 

Four other practice games with the 
Guardsmen are slated for May 1st, 
13th, 20th, and 23rd. The best outfit 
of the Regiment will ride to do battle 
with the college diamond outfit on May 
Day to correct that deficiency in the 
schedule of the Blue and White base- 
ballers. . _ .

Just as athletes in their careers, 
must at some time or other, bid adieu, 
so do we come to a stage in our work 
that we must regretfully say fare- 
well. We have tried to please you, 
dear reader, and if we have failed, we 
beg of you to forgive us, because we 
did try. 

As Washington in his "farewell ad 
dress" warned the people of these 
United States, so shall we, not warn, 
but humbly beseech you undergrad- 
uates of Lebanon Valley College to 
realise the situation at hand. We've 
written about it time and again, and 
perhaps at this stage, you are pretty 
well tired of it, but the fact still re- 
mains that a typical college spirit in 
athletics does not exist at the home 
of the Blue and White. 

Many students, who know the least 
about the situation, and go on hear- 
say, promptly lay blame of sport fail- 
ures on the coach. Well some of 
these kind souls that are so free with 
their opinions, but so miserly with 
any game spirit, should be subjected 
to any haranguing and tongue-lash- 
ings that the coach might give them. 

These same people during the bas- 
ketball season sat in their rooms, 
smoking, playing cards, and having a 
hilarious time laughing, at the mis- 
takes of the quintet, which they prob- 
ably had never seen in action. They 
say that Lebanon is too far to go to 
see a game, yet they'll go there for 
reasons not to be mentioned here. 

They want a new gymnasium. Well 
new gyms aren't being built simply 
on good looks. You have to show 
them some cash, and if the team gets 
such miserable followings such as 
some students present, then there cer- 
tainly won't be any cash to show. 

Well, dear friend, we are sorry that 
we've been so morbid, but this athletic 
problem has affected us in a more di- 
rect way than just the reporting an- 
gle. It has become a part of us, and 
we feel that any young American 
with an ounce of spirit, should want 
to go out and cheer for their team, 
win, lose, or draw, against Podunk or 
against Albright. 

And so, dear reader, we sing our 
swan song. It is our final active fling 
for our Alma Mater. We may sound 
ridiculously sentimental, but this 
place has just kind of worked its way 
into our system, and well, we hate to 
see anybody tear its sports down, 
from coaches to players. 

Think it over and maybe in the fu- 
ture, people will point at L. V. C. and 
say "Now there's a school with some 
spirit, I'd like to go there." 

To Mr. Frock, we want to extend 
our thanks for his splendid coopera- 
tion in reserving scoops for this page. 
We appreciate the fact that he real- 
izes that it means something to us to 
get the jump on the local daily. 

But now, the game has ended. 


Sports ^Jn Shorts 
by louise 

The return from Easter vacation 
saw the Frosh and Soph girls finish- 
ing off badminton and table tennis 
tournaments to determine class 
champions. The final results of these 
games have not yet been revealed, but 
it seems that the name, Marian 
Kreider, must be associated with 
table tennis, since in both the first 
and second year groups these two 
lassies with the same name are headed 
for top honors. Betty Johns far out- 
played all her oponents to carry away 
the Soph badminton lead. We can't 
make any predictions concerning the 
'44 gals. 

When these warm spring days come 
along and chase us out of doors, there 
are ostensibly two chief objectives on 
campus; namely, the archery range 
and tennis courts. In addition to the 
court veterans, Dottie Schindel, Nickie 
Witmeyer and Jane Stabley, two first 
year girls are seen doing some flashy 
racquet wielding — Ginnie Bernhard 
and Martha Wilt. Judging by the way 
both these Freshmen hopped from 
hockey to basketball to tennis, its safe 

to say that L. V. girls can continue to 
hold the sports record. 

And speaking of archery — it's no 
longer a struggling sport on L. V. 
campus. Its popularity is increasing 
by leaps and bounds, in fact so much 
that Lucy Esbenshade, archery leader 
has a tough time keeping track of the 
equipment. Incidentally, watch this 
column for news of an archery meet 
here on campus on Saturday, May 17. 

This coming week end marks the 
Play Day at Penn State. Seven girls 
will represent Lebanon Valley at that 
time. They are as follows: Archery, 
Lucy Esbenshade, Margaretta Carey; 
Tennis, Dottie Schindel, Martha Wilt, 
Nickie Witmeyer; Badminton, Mary 
Johns, Mary Mehaffey. Here's wishing 
you loads of luck! 

History Conference 
Attracts 4 from L. V. 

Four representatives o£ Lebanon

of the Pennsylvania Federation of 
Historical Societies held at Harris- 
bury on April 10. Dr. H. H. Shenk, 
Professor Frederic Miller, Jane Y. 
Ehrhart, and Ralph Shay were those 
present. The sessions were held in the 
Penn Harris Hotel. 

The average Bell telephone is 

in working order 

99.9% of the time! 

But that doesn't satisfy 

this man. His job is 

to hunt for trouble . • . 

to check every line. 

He finds weak spots 

and gets them fixed 

before they trouble you. 

So that the next time 

you call the best girl . . . 

or telephone home . . . 

your message will go through 

quickly and clearly — 

around the corner 

or across the continent.

German Club Completes 
Plans For Movies 

A program of three German mo- 
tion pictures has been arranged by the 
German Club to be presented on Tues- 
day evening, April 29, at eight o'clock. 
The pictures, which will probably be 
shown in the chemistry lecture room, 
are "talkies" with German dialogue 
and narration. The program includes 
"A Trip Through Germany," a two 
reel "short" which has been popular 
in theatres throughout the country; 
"A Peasant Wedding in Hesser," a 
colorful reel depicting the quaint wed- 
ding customs of Old Germany; and 
either "Lcve of the Harmonica," with 
the fine old folk tunes of Germany, 
or "Memories of Schubert," including 
many of the composer's most popular 
compositions. Everyone is cordially in- 
vited to attend. Admission is free. 
The pictures are released through the 
German Railroads Information Office.

Bookstaber s Address 

Last Friday evening, Dr. Lynch de- 
livered an address in the Ohev Sholom 
Temple, of which Bookstaber is Rabbi, 
in Harrisburg on the subject, "The 
Basic Elements of the Judaeo-Chris- 
tian Faith." Two members of the 
freshman class at Lebanon Valley, 
Gene Cohan and Bernard Rubin, par- 
ticipated in the program. While in 
Harrisburg Dr. Lynch was a guest in 
the home of Bernard Rubin. Dr. Lynch 
has revealed the fact that Rabbi 
Friedman of Harrisburg is going to 
present a set of the complete works 
of Gcethe to the library.

years to come depends upon, and does 
not cause, yours. The most sorrowful 
part of the whole situation is that 
woman's adaptability is coupled with a 
undaunted faith in men which is not 
always well-founded. 

This question of chivalry, as raised 
by Alf Noise, aroused my very femin- 
ine instinct of curiosity, so that I 
did some research on the matter. Chiv- 
alry was, of course, an attribute of 
feudalism, and in its purity was lost 
with the death of that institution. The 
modern connotation of the chivalrous 
man is the courteous gentleman. I 
could quote numberless examples to 
show how the men of L. V., as com- 
pared with men from other schools, 
fall woefully short in this respect; but 
that would be futile. It is never fair 
to pick random examples, and besides, 
some irrate man would match me story 
for story. But perhaps the oaths of 
the old Christian Knight will give you 
something to think about, boys. Read 
them over, keeping in mind that we 
girls can be only as womanly as you 
expect us to be. 

The Christian Knight swore: 

1. To be courteous. 

2. To redress wrongs. 

3. To keep his word. 

4. To quarrel only in a just cause. 

5. To protect the helpless. 

6. To protect women.

and shouted while Elijah mocked them 
saying- — "Call him louder — perhaps 
he sleeps, or is away, or can't hear 
you." After several hours of this, Eli- 
jah called on his God. Immediately a 
fire descended and the people were 
awe struck. Then Elijah prayed for 
rain and asked a youth to look toward 
the sea for a sign of rain. None ap- 
peared, though Elijah sent the youth 
seven times to look. Finally a cloud 
appeared. Then the rain came, then 
torrents "to lave the thirsty land." 

PART 2— But Jezebel, Ahab's wife, 
argued with him and persuaded him 
to return to the worship of Baal. She 
also made threats against the life of 
Klijah. Greatly disappointed in the 
turn of events, Elijah prays that he 
be allowed to die. As he sleeps (be- 
neath a juniper tree) an angel ap- 
pears and directs him to go to Mount 
Horeb, the mount of God. There the 
Lord appears to him — not in a temp- 
est, or an earthquake or a fire — but 
in a still small voice, telling him to 
return to Israel and continue his work 
among the people there. Sometime la- 
ter, when Elijah was ready to die, he 
was taken to heaven in a fiery chariot 
by a whirlwind.

Places At Universities 


Two members of the senior class, 
Kcbert Reiff anc * Marlin Espenshade, 
luve been added to the list of grad- 
uates to receive offers to attend grad- 
uate schools. To date Robert *Breen 
and Robert Reiff of the chemistry de- 
artment have been so honored while 
Marlin Espenshade is the first of the

major, has been granted a graduate 
ass istantship in the chemistry depart- 
ment cf the University of Cincinnati. 
Mr. Reiff will spend twelve hours a 
week giving laboratory instruction. 
This, in combination with his research 
work in physical chemistry, will ob- 
tain for him in several years the de- 
gree of Master of Science. 

Ample proof of Reiff's brilliant 
work in the undergraduate chemistry 
department at Lebanon Valley is 
found in his successful completion of 
forty chemical credit hours. He was 
awarded membership in Phi Alpha 

Another senior, Marlin A. Espen- 
shade, who is a major in the biology 
department, has been granted a grad- 
uate assistantship in general biology 
at Purdue University, Lafayette, In- 
diana, where a student of Dr. Derick-

Espenshade's duties will be to assist 
in general biology, several divisions in 
laboratory, and three or four recita- 
tion divisions as well as to attend one 
lecture a week in general biology. The 
remainder of the time will be free, 
Permitting him to go on with his grad- 
ate study toward obtaining a Mas- 
ter's degree in a biological science. 

Mr. Espenshade has been an honor 
st udent, with a Phi Alpha Epsilon 
certificate while at Lebanon Valley.

play the type of melodies which the 
juniors request in his original ar-

s Stonecipher *ills 
^ Post As Examiner 
On Jesuit Project 

Dr. A. H. M. Stonecipher, Dean of 
Lebanon Valley College, was one of 
the examiners at the Virgilian Aca- 
demy held Sunday, April 20, at the 
Jesuit Novitiate, Wernersville, Penn- 

Ihis affair is annually programmed 
as an extra curricular project in 
which four students of the Novitiate 
are quizzed on the works of Virgil. 
Today, as was the case at the found- 
ing of the Jesuit movement more than 
four hundred years ago, the Jesuits 
emphasize the classical education. It 
is no wonder, then, that the four ex- 
positors, pupils of the Novitiate, were 
able to face sixteen examiners who 
interrogated them on the Metrical, 
Grammatical, Mythological and Aes- 
thetic content of Virgil's Eclogues, 
Georgics, and Aeneid. 

Along with Dr. Stonecipher, the 
board of examiners consisted of Latin 
Professors from Georgetown Univer- 
sity, Fordham University, University 
of Pittsburgh, Princeton University, 
Franklin and Marshall College, and 
other famous colleges and universities 
in the East. Each of these examiners 
were given from five to seven min- 
utes on a previously assigned por- 
tion of Virgil's Latin Classics.

On Monday night several members 
of the Wig and Buckle Club witness- 
ed the Theatre Guild production of 
Robert Sherwood's play "There Shall 
Be No Night," starring Alfred Lunt 
and Lynn Fontanne. 

Already acquainted with Mr. Sher- 
wood's plays and the acting of the 
Lunts, we were unprepared for "There 
Shall Be No Night." The scene of 
the play is Helsinki, from early Oc- 
tober, 1938, to late February, 1940, 
just before and during the "Finnish 
incident." Against this background of 
suspense and tragedy move Dr. Kaar- 
lo Valkonen, eminent neurologist and 
Nobel prize winner, and his wife Mir- 
anda, their son Erik, his sweetheart 
Kaatri, Uncle Waldemar and Dave 
Corween, American newspaper and 
radio man. 

Martlux Jane Koontz 
The play dramatically presented the 
conflicting present day philosophies: 
in Erik, the grim determination to 
fight to the bitter end, not because 
of any possibility of victory, but sole- 
ly because of the intrinsic worth of 
the cause; in Kaatri, the hatred of 
the futility of it all and the determin- 
ation to snatch a bit of happiness be- 
fore life is cut off; in Dr Ziemssen, 
a German diplomat residing in Hel- 
sinki, the brutal fiendishness of Nazi- 
sm; and in Dr. Valkonen, the Chris- 
tian hope for a new world, a hope 
which can make a scientist go to his 
dpath with the words of the prophecy 
of St. John on his lips, "And there 
shall be no more curse; but the throne 
f God and of the Lamb shall be in 
it; and his servants shall serve him: 
And they shall see his face; and h : s 

.»ame shall be in their foreheads. And 
there shall be no night there; and 
they need no candle, neither light of 
the sun; for the Lord God giveth them 
light: and they shall reign for ever 
and ever." 

If an attempt to summarize the 
play is difficult, an attempt to crit- 
icize the acting is impossible. Tne 
Lunts played Dr. and Mrs. Vfalkouer.

Beyond that there is nothing to say. 
Among the minor characters, Eliza- 
beth Fraser as Kaatri and Richard 
VYhorf as Dave Corween were out- 
standing. Incidentally, Richard Whorf 
also designed the settings and did a 
very good job, too, for each set per- 
fectly indicated the mood of the ac-

As the result of the chapel election 
held on Friday morning, David Gock- 
ley and Phoebe Geyer were chosen by 
the student body to serve as "Y" pres- 
idents for the college year of 1941-42. 
The remaining newly elected officers 
of the Y. W. C. A. include: Genevieve 
Stansfield, vice president; Virginia 
Goodman, recording secretary; Mar- 
jorie Holly, corresponding secretary; 
Martha Davies, treasurer; Phyllis 
Deitzler, pianist; Marian C. Kreider 
and Verna Stonecipher, day student 
representatives; Mrs. Amos Black 
and Mrs. Frederic K. Miller, social 
advisers. Other officers of the Y. M. 
C. A. are: Walter Ebersole, vice pres- 
ident; Charles Miller, Jr., secretary; 
and George Ziegler, treasurer. 

The new president of the Y. W. C. 
A., a junior from Middletown, has 
been active in "Y" work throughout 
her college career. She began on the 
freshman "Y" Cabinet and served as 
pianist of the organization for the 
next two years. Her ability in sports 
is well known, for she has recently 
been elected the "best girl athlete" of 
Lebanon Valley College. 

David Gockley, a junior ministerial 
student from Ephrata, is a transfer 
from Shenandoah College where he 
was secretary of his class as a fresh- 
man and later served as Devotional 
Chairman of the Y. M. C. A. During 
his first year at Lebanon Valley he 
has been a member of the "Y" Cabi- 
net and has been active as deputation 
chairman of the Life Work Recruits. 

The president of the Y. W. C. A., 
Phoebe Geyer, announces the follow- 
ing appointments: Evelyn Stine, 
Prayer Meeting Chairman; Ruth Ha- 
verstock, assistant Prayer Meeting

Wig And Buckle Club 
To Present Guest Artist 

The Wig and Buckle Club presents 
as a special attraction at its meeting 
on Monday, May 5, in Engle Hall, 
Miss Patricia Altwater, ballet dancer. 
The program begins at 7 :30 p.m., 

Miss Altwater, a graduate of Penn 
State, is at present a teacher in the 
physical education department at Pal- 
myra High School. Before entering 
upon the teaching profession, Miss 
Altwater danced with the Pittsburgh 
Ballet Company and toured the coun- 
try with the Ruth St. Denis Ballet 
Troupe. As a part of her program, 
which consists of four numbers, she 
will present an authentic Mexican 
version of La Conga, the current dance 

The one act play to be presented at 
this same meeting is to be directed by 
Mrs. Evelyn Ware Lynch. The play, 
"Low Bridge," was written by Grace

During the entire school year the 
campus is quite aware that the Con- 
servatory of Music is a vital part of 
Lebanon Valley College whether it is 
merely because of the jumble of 
sounds issuing from Engle Hall or 
the appearance of a fine band at a 
football game. At one time of the 
year, however, pride in this depart- 
ment reaches a new high. The Annual 
Music Festival marks this peak. 

For the real quality of the pro- 
grams presented this year the band, 
glee club, chorus, and orchestra de- 
serve all acclaim awarded them by 
their audiences. For adding richly to 
the culture to be gained at L. V. C. 
the festival takes a foremost place. 
For the direction of Professor Rut- 
ledge both the participants and the 
listeners have doffed their hats in ad- 

We wish to give this musical high- 
light the lofty position among all cam- 
pus activities which it deserves. 


In the history of every government 
there arises at some time a crisis 
when the delegation of power must 
be determined. Such a time has come 
to the students of Lebanon Valley 
whether they wish to face the issue 
or not. What is to be the status of 
our student governing bodies? 

A real illness has infected the en- 
tire school with the irresponsible, I- 
don't-care germs of "it's everybody's 
concern and fault but mine." Now 
that the crisis is approaching mainte- 
nance of self-autonomy will only re- 
place paralysis if there is a geniune 
will to survive. 

Student government — do you want 
it? You, who are shouting, "Yes!" 
the loudest, take stock of your own 
actions. Lebanon Valley needs loyal- 
ty, the student governments need co- 
operation, and the loudest "gripers" 
ought to get glasses so they can fo- 
cus their efforts on what goes on clos- 
est to them. Is student government 
going to go from crutches to a wheel 
chair or walk on its own two feet 
when the crisis is over?

Orchids to the cast of Wurzel-Flum- 
mery — 'twas a nice piece of entertain- 
ment. We can't help but remark how 
even more handsome Jack McFadden 
looked as an older man. Aging helps 
so many things! And a very special 
orchid to Bruce Souders for acting 
so much at home up there on the 
boards. Betty Grube and Charlotte 
Harnish looked so feminine and nice 
as they flitted in and out. Ah yes! 
And then came Rubin — cane, battered 
hat, dandelion, and lisp. He was ex- 
actly right for the part, think we. 

There seems to be a bit of trouble 
among the serving force of "The 
White Steed." The Irish dialect re- 
quired for this part of the cast is 
proving to be a major set-back. Ev- 
erybody has a different idea of how 
it should be done. Dr. Struble took 
one night off to give directions on the 
subject, but they can't coordinate — 
the Irish of Mehaffey, Ruppersberger, 
Trout, and McFerren still remains as 
four separate products! 

We understand that there have 
been several cuts in the language of 
the play for obvious reasons, but 
there is one little cut that has proved 
to be a disappointment to Ellen . . . 
she can't be called "carrots." Her hair 
just isn't a bit more on the red side 
than Flo's is, so Dr. Struble sees no 
basis for the name . . . and Ellen was 
so attached to that line! 

A big decision has been made by 
the New York Drama Critics Circle — 
they have voted Lillian Hellman's 
"Watch on the Rhine" as the best 
American play of the season and En- 
trym Williams', "The Corn is Green," 
as the best play of foreign sources. 
Both plays have been much discussed 
all winter and there has been a great 
deal of curiosity among drama enthu- 
siasts as to which of this year's fine 
crop of plays would be voted tops by 
this important group.

S. R. F. B. 

La Vie Collegienne anounces the 
addition of a new feature to their 
weekly publication through the cour- 
tesy and cooperation of the S. R. F. B. 
(Society for Recognition of Feminine 
Beauty), the Girl of the Week on 
Lebanon Valley College's Campus will 
be announced. 

To assist them, the S. R. F. B. has 
acquired the services of Count I. M. 
Womanwise yours truly, eminent ob- 
server of the female element. Having 
traveled extensively in Cairo, Egypt; 
the South Sea Islands; Paris, France; 
and the Orient; the Count has seen 
the best in female beauty. His well- 
trained eye finds much of interest on 
this campus. Though his temples are 
greying and his monocle is his best 
friend, Count I. M. Womanwise is not 
a "gad about" as one might suppose. 
He lets nothing interfere with his 
work. His only text book is Esquire, 
magazine for men; but even this in- 
terferes with his work. He is a self- 
made man, observant, and like the 
Greeks, ai lover of beauty. 

As a matter of introduction, the 
S. R. F. B. is a secret organization 
which chooses each week the girl they 
feel is most eligible to bear the title 
of "Girl of the Week." Three winners 
in previous polls are Ellen Rupers- 
berger, talented Senior English Maj- 
or; Jean Daugherty, amiable daughter 
of a Washington, D. C. clergyman, 
and Dorothy Jean Light, a Freshman 
contribution to the cause. 

Last week's choice for the girl of 
the week was "Peggy" Boyd, a Man- 
heim product, Senior Song-bird, and 
regular with John Chambers. 

Now the choice for this week. Mar-

Off with the Old and on with the New — Cheerio and a great big how-be-you! 
This is your new grapevine tapper reporting — the whole truth — please 
believe me. Well, hold on- — here comes the surprise attack. 

Double-Trouble — We're gullible 'n all that, but wouldn't a tale like this make 
even you wonder ? Seems like car trouble kept Janet Schopf and her 
mother from making it back to the dorm on Friday night — her mother's 
presence legalized that. But when Janet Marie pulled in late on Sunday 
eve and greeted the keeper-of-the-key with a soldier and a "We had 
a flat tire line" — Well, gals 'n boys — 

A "Silly" Sleepphony— Wasn't it thoughtful of fellow American-historites to 
creep out of class oh so quietly so as not to waken slumbering Silli- 
man? — If the horde of Peeping Toms at the door had been less boys- 
terous, the lad might have caught up with lots of sheep. 

La Vie Staff Sets Up Housekeeping— in the kitchen of the conserv annex- 
Assets to date: one typewriter, two cupboards — But just wait 'til we get 
organized! By the way, ad-chasing "Uncle Joe" doesn't see why he 
can't have a pretty secretary — all the other big business men do. 

We hear — that "Jackie" Guinivan is still fuming because a mere female 
(Alice Abbott, Women's Singles Champ of Philadelphia) set him back in 
a tennis match— that Margie Bordwell came to french class plastered — 
a hang-over from working with plaster-of-paris Alladin lamps— that 
Shay staged a miniature riot in the Day Stude's room because he ac- 
tually has to dance 'round the may pole and not merely hang onto a rib- 
bon and walk — that Renee and Max might 1111 be featuring a return 
engagement!— that a big bruiser growled at one of our luncheon specials: 
"All Vxtamines and nothing to eat!"— that Stabley and Boltz are not 
going "for so" but 'for steady" these days. 

We wonder why — after a date with "Kitzie," Leah Foltz exclaimed: "His 
statements are too ambiguous!" — South Hollers consider a dose of poison 
ivy proof of a date (we're just playing dumb). 

He's at it again— you're right the first time— we do mean Bud Rubin and 
all his lads who sent an air- mail letter to movie actress, June Preiser, 
inviting her to the Junior Prom — sorry to disappoint you, but Mr. Rubin 
doesn't think she can make it. 

Mistaken Identity— Bob Uhrich has been taking razzing a-plenty since en 
route from school one day what he claimed to be a ring-necked pheasant 
proved to be a mallard duck— he was up the right family tree anyway . 

Candid shots of the faculty— Jerry Frock good-naturedly accepting Prof. 
Balsbaugh's suggestion that he skip the first innings of games— Dr. 
Wallace delighting his Shakespeare class with: "I wish we had a double 
clock— one for you and one for me, so that I could lecture two hours 
and you'd think it only one."— Dr. Bailey getting so terribly excited 
when "Jabber" Shay swooned in class— Miss Lietzau finding her Army 
students such pleasant company— Madame Green looking oh so happy 
since moving back into her apartment— Miss Gillespie sliding in the 
conserv and twisting her ankle— she picked herself up and went on her 
way, but the report flew forth that she was badly hurt— which all goes 
to prove that several grains of salt should be digested with each rumor. 

Signing Off— We hope that this first attempt hasn't secured us a berth in 
the dog-house. If it has— please remember— we like our dog-biscuits 

jorie Kishpaugh is the lucky winner. 
Marjorie is a sweet bud from the 

Chocolatetown. She is a senior and, 
believe it or not she will be seen lead- 
ing off the promenade with Carrol 

McFerren at the Junior Prom. Con- 
gratulations, "Margy"! 

Well, so long until next week. Mean- 
while I. M. Womanwise will be sharp- 
ening his wits by taking "Six Lessons 
from Madame Lazonga" and joining 
the Girl Scouts. Au Revoir.

The annual event of Mothers' ty 

end (otherwise known as fiei, Celi " 


water era for the occupants f 
Men's Dorm) was observed begi n ^ 
Friday last and ending Sunday 1 ^ 8 
mothers coming and going freel' ^ 
time during that space. ^ 

Since the highlights of the occ a ' 
—the Elijah Friday night, 
Flummery Saturday afternoon 
the girls' volley ball game Satu^ 
morning— have been enlarged 
previously, let us pass on to theT^ 
quet, a gay event staged on Satur<T" 
at five. 'Mid a wealth of flowers, butf! 
birdhouses (yes, really!), candlel^' 
and further delights, the mothers and 
daughters— not to mention two men 
who somehow wangled themselves J 
to the sanctuary— (they were visjto" 
on campus)— enjoyed a very Speck , 
dinner made even more enjoyable b 
the strains of the string trio (Vi J 
Turco, violin, Jessie Robertson, cejfo 
and Peggy Boyd, piano, to those who 
have been asleep to the fact). 

Mrs. Ruppersberger, Ellen Belle's 
mama, very conveniently had a birth 
day on the 26th, so the girls could 
demonstrate what happens to people 
here who have (and who don't have) 

After the meal Mrs. Wallace gave 
a short and worthwhile talk on a sub- 
ject apropos of current events. The 
program further consisted of 2 num- 
bers from the vocal trio (Boyd, Bord- 
well, and Robertson) and some songs 
by all, led by Mary Liz Spangler. 

. . . But enough of that . . . let's get 
on the inside of Mothers' Week-end. 
... Of course the arrival of the guests 
created quite a clutter and overflow, 
which they thought a pity after some- 
thing had actually induced their 
daughters to clean their rooms right 
for once. . . . And of course, as usual, 
most of the men fled for their lives at 
the first sight of newcomers — except 
ones who had the golden opportunity 
of meeting very special mamas. . . • 
For instance, Johnny Dressier, who 
was very bashful around Peg's moth- 
er, and Smitty, who was petrified at 
the very thought. . . . 

. . . Then there were a couple of 
step-mothers who were left speechless 
by numerous exclamations of how 
their daughters resembled them—! 

... A few odds and ends. . • • M rs ' 
Crone voiced a very great desire to 
slide down the banister in North Hall. 
... the floor in Clio Hall was so un- 
accustomed to being clean and slip- 
pery that it revolted by sliding sev- 
eral people off their feet. . • • ^ lS ' 
Brigham was heard to say, "The h 1 
diantown Gap men ond their motor 
trucks fascinate me!" . . . The moth- 
ers were delighted with their late P el 

missions Saturday night! . • • ...

seemed to be the chief complaint- . 
Stansfield stated very definitely ^ 
she'd rather swim in it than

Some of the guests were apP^ q{ 
at the pace set for eating! ( Fo1 „

days!) Some other thir 
couldn't get accustomed to w "

best the Dutchmen could do was to

via the strike out route. Afield the 
Valley boys committed two miscues, 
one which resulted in a score in the

For the Bullets it was the pitching 
of Aungst and the stickwork of Kane,

Match With Dickinson 
Opens Tennis Season 

The L. V. C. Tennis team opened its 
1941 season by dropping a match to 
the more experienced Dickinson team 
by the score of 8-1. 

Individual results are unavailable, 
but it is understood that Alton Smith, 
playing the No. 2 position garnered 
the only victory for the Dutchmen. 
Lack of experience resulted in the 
sweeping defeat, but with the condi- 
tioning of the home courts, more fav- 
orable results are expected in later 

En Garde! 

Several days ago the Labor Media- 
tion Board suffered its first setback 
since its inception as a vital part of 
our National Defense structure. This 
occurred in the attempted settlement 
of the soft-coal strike which has ex- 
isted for some time. Prior to this 
first defeat the Board had achieved 
success in the solutions of the Allis- 
Chalmers strike which lasted 78 days 
and the Bethlehem Steel strike last- 
inly only a few weeks. In both in- 
stances the parties concerned, namely, 
the representatives of both the em- 
ployer and the employee, were able 
to reach an amicable agreement over 
the fundamental questions of collec- 
tive-bargaining and wage increases. 

But now all attempts at a settle- 
ment of the present emergency have 
failed and many of our defense pro- 
duction units have begun to feel the 
pinch of a widespread coal shortage. 
It has been estimated that between 
15% and 20% of our average month- 
ly steel output has been curtailed by 
the lack of fuel. The ultimate result 
of such curtailment will be the halt- 
ing of production lines on tanks, guns, 
and planes, with a corresponding de- 
crease in our merchant marine launch- 
ings and naval production. 

This strike is entirely different in 
character from any situation the Lab- 
jr Board has had to face so far, which 
may be the cause of this first break- 
down. In this case the operators 
themselves are refusing to cooperate 
with one another, with the result that 
the southern operators refuse to grant 
wage increases to their employees 
which the northern operators have al- 
ready done. Then John L. Lewis en- 
ters the picture and forbids his CIO- 
United Mine Workers union to nego- 
tiate with the Board. In the face of 
this dilemna it seems as though the 
case must go to high authority for 
settlement, and soon! 

Probably the President will put 
these idle mines, miners, and opera- 
tors themselves all under governmen- 
tal control. This may be a rather 
drastic step but we must remember 
that America is grasped by an emer- 
gency such as it has never felt before. 
Under these circumstances this act 
would be altogether justifiable. No 
one should be seriously affected by 
the move except those operators 
whose enormous profits might be 
handled a little roughly at first, or 
at least until coal production was 
running smoothly once again. But no 
matter what the effect on any indi- 
vidual may be, the problem must be 
met and dealt with promptly for 
most of our great steel producing 
companies have only a week's supply 
of soft coal in reserve. With defense 
production nearing a gigantic bottle- 
neck, the dictator nations may be 
provided with the perfect opportunity 
for crushing England and enslaving 
her rugged people. With speed as 
the keynote America must open the 
doors of her mighty arsenals still 
wider a-d pour forth her elixir of hope 
for the battling British Empire. 

Page's Ex-editor 


Athlete Retires 
As Sports Editor 

When Alex Rakow relinquished the 
reins that he took up a year ago as 
editor of this page with him went the 
plaudits and salutes of the incoming 
sports reviewers. Alex faced a her- 
culean task of almost single handedly 
presenting accounts of occurrences on 
the athletic fields of L. V. C. Rakow 
squared his shoulders and went to 
work on his assignment. He handled 
his job in a masterful and unequaled 
fashion from the first to the last is- 

But Alex established precedent and 
tradition at L. V. C. not only for his 
outstanding work as a sports inter- 
pretator. His courage and stubborn 
and aggressive play on the gridiron 
for 4 years has stamped him as one of 
the greatest little ball players to don 
a uniform for the Blue and White in 
the football history of L. V. C. Alex 
has exemplified the spirit of determin- 
ation, courage, fight and dogged re- 
sistance in the face of adversity that 
is needed to win a ball game. What- 
ever advantage Rakow gave 'way to 
his opponents in the matter of weight 
and height, he compensated for with 
fight — 148 pounds of fight on a ram- 

Beyond and above all this, Alex has 
always proved a loyal and trustworthy 
friend who could be depended upon 
when called to service. The story of 
gallant Alex Rakow has almost be 
come a legend before his departure 
from Lebanon Valley. 

Moravian Nine 
Trounces L. V- C. 
By 10-4 Score 

Still seeking their first victory of 
the current season, the Lebanon Val- 
ley diamond artists traveled to Beth- 
lehem last week to receive a 10-4 set- 
back at the hands of Moravian Col- 

Bob Weiler started on the mound 
for the locals, but was chased from 
the hill in the first inning when Mor- 
avian put across seven markers. Art 
Russo came in for relief, and pitched 
the remainder of the game. 

The Valley came to life in the fourth 
inning when Ralph Mease singled, Don 
Staley was safe on an error, but a 
moment later was forced at second 
by Capt. Kuhn. Eddie Schillo then 
slammed a double to left, and two runs 
crossed the plate. Schillo later scored 
in Pewee Miller's smashing triple. 

Mease homered to right field in the 
fifth inning to cut the Moravian lead 
to 7-4, but the Greyhounds scored 
three more in their half, to end the 
scoring for the day. 

It was the third straight setback 
for Coach Ullery's lads, and left the 
Valleyites still hunting for their first 

Griffith and Kraus were the leading 
hitters for the victors with "two for 
three," while Ed Schillo and Mease 
led Lebanon Valley in both hitting 
and fielding. 


On Saturday morning at seven 
o'clock, Miss Henderson and the sev- 
en girls chosen to represent Lebanon 
Valley at Penn State's 2nd Annual 
Sports Day set out to reach their des- 
tination shortly after ten o'clock. The 
group went first to the Mary Beaver 
White Hall, women's recreation cen- 
ter, where they were registered. 

The tennis players then proceeded 
to the tennis courts where each girl 
was teamed with one from another 
school, and doubles matches ensued. 
In all the games played by teams in- 
cluding L. V. girls, our representa- 
tives were triumphant. During the 
morning session, Mary K. Brown, for- 
mer national tennis champion, con- 
ducted a clinic illustrating proper 
form. Dottie Schindel took advantage 
of Miss Brown's offer to give individ- 
ual criticism and correction. In the 
afternoon she played in an exhibition 
match for the benefit of all tennis 

The badminton games were conduct- 
ed in a Round Robin Tournament. 
There were six courts on which sin- 
gles matches were played. Each play- 
er was assigned to a court where she 
remained until she won a game. On 
winning she moved on to the next 
court. Both the Blue and White rep- 
resentatives broke even in the games 
they played; Mehaffey winning three 
out of six games, Johns winning four 
out of eight games. Swarthmore made 
the best showing in this particular 

In the archery competition Lebanon 
Valley girls made a particularly good 
showing. The archery group was di-

As is customary with the individ- 
ual accepting the job of compiler of 
this page upon the change of staff, 
this writer will make a statement of 
policy at the start of his assumption 
of duties rather than belatedly form- 
ulating such statement when a de- 
fense of his position becomes exped- 
ient. It is hoped that this policy will 
be in accord with the spirit concern- 
ing athletics prevailing on the Blue 
and White campus. 

First of all, this writer and his 
chosen associates will not merely re- 
port events in the local sports world 
as they occur from week to week, but 
will endeavor to carry back to the 
campus through the medium of the 
college paper some interpretations of 
these same events. Not that such re- 
ports will be superficial, but on the 
other hand, all efforts will be made 
to prevent artificial and insincere 
presentation of contests in which Leb- 
anon Valley athletic teams may par- 

Secondly, these interpretations will 
be presented as they appear to this 
staff of writers as spectators and 
followers of the teams representing 
L. V. C. on the gridiron, basketball 
court and baseball diamond. Thirdly, 
such reports will be uncolored by pre- 
judice, bias, personal opinion, partiali- 
ty or wishful thinking. 

Fourthly, credit will be given 
where credit is due and censure will 
be placed where censure is forthcom- 
ing. However, in any event, this writ- 
er will do all within his power to pre- 
vent blame being unjustly placed up- 
on the heads of both players and 
coaches. Lastly, this writer unequiv- 
ocally and wholeheartedly pledges 100 
per cent support of the athletes and 
the interests of athletes carrying on 
the traditions established by Dutch- 
men performers in years gone by.

ing and half in the afternoon. Among 
the colleges participating in the lat- 
ter group Lebanon Valley came out 
on top. For the entire day, Carey 
copped third honors with a score of 
369, while Lucy Espenshade followed 
immediately with 354 counters. The 
first and second places, held by New 
Jersey College for Women and Uni- 
versity of Maryland, respectively, ac- 
quired the honor by virtue of scores 
of 403 and 393. The additional col- 
leges represented in the archery com- 
petition were Bucknell, Juniata, Wil- 
son and Penn State. 

The day was climaxed by a banquet 
at Nittany Lion Inn where the Penn 
State Dean of Women, Miss Ray, was 
the main speaker; she chose as her 
subject, "The Girl and the Game." 
The dinner was followed by a circus, 
"Penn State on Parade," presented 
by the men's physical education de- 
partment. A main feature of this af- 
fair was the presentation of a cup to 
the girl chosen as queen of the circus. 
It also featured demonstrations of 
physical agility as taught in the cur- 

This event marked the second an- 
nual Sports Day, sponsored by the 
Penn State Women's Recreational As- 
sociation. There were twenty-four 
schools representing five states includ- 
ed in the occasion. The states were 
Ohio, New York, New Jersey, West 
Virginia and Pennsylvania. Schools 
of various types were represented; 
Ohio State University, University of 
Pennsylvania, Pitt were among the 
large schools; Swarthmore and Wil- 
son were among the girls' schools; 
Lebanon Valley was typical of small- 
er coed institutions. This wide variety 
of schools gives a cross-section rep- 
resentation of recreational activity in 
schools of eastern United States. 

It seems that the schools with the 
strong intermural programs were in- 
cluded in the Sports Day. The organi- 
zation of the day's events was partic- 
ularly outstanding. Everything pro- 
ceeded smoothly without any break in 
the continuity of any one event; no 
overlapping occurred. Throughout the 
day, sports for sports' sake was 
stressed; the idea of winning was 
ignored. This kind of event is one of 
the most dynamic factors in promot- 
ing intermural sports, as seen from 
the physical educator's viewpoint. 

Telescope Prints 
Lynch's Address 


The current issue of the Religious 
Telescope, the official publication of 
the United Brethren Church, carries 
a reprint of an address recently de- 
livered by Dr. Clyde A. Lynch at the 
Biennial State Convention of the Fed- 
erated Legislative Committee. 

The article, entitled "Spiriual Re- 
armament," presents a forceful argu- 
ment proposing a return to more fun- 
damental beliefs and ethical standards 
of living. Dr. Lynch points out that 
the Church today must be a militant 
body of spiritual members, using ev- 
ery means within its province to lift 
mankind to higher levels of thinking 
and living, and to advance the King- 
dom of God upon earth. 

In view of the present international 
situation, the example of the collapse 
of France is used to emphasize the 
need for America to return to moral 
virtues. Dr. Lynch says in part, "We 
must get back on God's side. Spirit- 
uality consists in knowing and doing 
His will."

The extraordinary ending of the

Waldemar is seated at the piano in 
the still bright and cheerful living-

The editor of the 1942 Quittie, Rob- 
ert Guinivan, announces that the 
yearbooks will be distributed next 
week. On Wednesday and Thursday, 
May 7 and 8, they may be obtained 
at the library. 

Between the hours of 9:15 and 5:45

L. V. C. Extends 
Hand To Soldiers 

Lebanon Valley has opened its 
doors to the soldiers from Indiantown 
Gap by offering them a chance to par- 
ticipate in May Day and giving night 
classes in those subjects which they 
desire. These classes are held on Tues- 
day, Wednesday and Thursday even- 
ings. Dr. Clyde Stine contacted the 
soldiers and teachers in order to find 
what courses they wish to pursue. 
Dr. Lena L. Leitzau, Dr. Amos Black, 
and Dr. Bailey volunteered to provide 
work in German, Mathematics, and 

The library has also, by the cour- 
tesy of Miss Ethel Myers, offered to 
supply books to the soldiers. Pro- 
vision has been made, however, that 
books needed by L. V. C. students will 
not be given and they may keep the 
books for one week only. 

For the most part, these soldiers 
are college students whose prepara- 
tion for professions was interrupted 
by the draft. They are not receiving 
credit for the work obtained in these 
evening sessions.

Official Greetings To 

May Day Visitors 

by Dr. Clyde A. Lynch 

May Day has always been a gala 
day at Lebanon Valley College. Except 
when weeping clouds have concealed 
the genial face of old sol, our colorful 
festivities have attracted hundreds of 
visitors to our beautiful campus, This 
Saturday "Aladdin and His Wonderful 
Lamp" will be the ''open sesame" to an 
afternoon of unique entertainment, 
enabling us to explore, in the world 
of make-believe, the golden days of 
phildhood with all the glamor of Ara- 
bian pageantry. 

It is my happy privilege to extend 
to our visitors a ;hearty welcome. 
Every faculty member and student is 
ready to perform any appropriate ser- 
vice that may add to the comfort and 
enjoyment of our guests. 

We are delighted to greet the high- 
school seniors participating in our 
competitive examinations. These young 
people are to be congratulated on their 
superior academic attainments; and 
we are glad to assist them in material- 
izing their visions of a college educa- 

The presence of parents and teach- 
ers, who, no doubt, have in some cases 
inconvenienced themselves in order to 
bring their young charges here, is 
likewise appreciated. It is hoped that 
these temporary inconveniences may 
be translated into enduring personal 
and social values, to the satisfaction 
°f giver and recipient alike. 

To our alumni and other friends 
Lebanon Valley College has become 
tt] e Mecca to which May Day annually 
attl 'acts and delights faithful pil- 
Siims. Our students, under the able 
leadership of Miss Esther Henderson, 
are eager to perpetuate a tradition 

at extends back into many student 
^rations. Students come and go, but 

e s Pirit of May Day goes on forever !

Philokosmians Set 
For Anniversary 

All plans have been completed for 
the Philokosmian Weekend, and Anni- 
versary President, Johnny Dressier 
claims that it will be the best ever. 
Beginning on Friday night with the 
joint Philo-Clio production "The White 
Steed," an exciting weekend has been 
prepared, for all, climaxed Saturday 
evening by the dinner dance at Galen 
Hall, at which ninety couples includ-

Written by Paul Vincent Carroll, 
"The White Steed," a Broadway hit 
of a few years back, takes its title 
from an old Irish legend; but don't 
let the "old" mislead you for it is a 
very modern play, very appropriate 
during the current world crisis. This 
play marks the final dramatic appear- 
ance of several of our finest players — 
Ellen Ruppersberger, Floda Trout, 
Martha Jane Koontz, Isabel Shatto, 
and Harry Fehl. Others in the cast 
are Dennis Shirk, Can-oil Reed, Earl

Banquet At Hershey 
With 1941 Grads 

As a conclusion to the events of

Other events of the day include 
trustees' meeting, class day program, 
and alumni get-togethers. 

At noon the alumni will eat in the

it has been the custom of the grads 
to stage a parade around campus, dis- 
playing banners which represent their 
respective classes. This procedure will 
probably be repeated again this year. 
Graduates for' fifty years back will be 
present for this celebration, which 
will be in charge of Mr. Percy L.

May Day Chairman 

New Attitudes 
Found By Dr. Lynch 
At Council Meeting 

On May 2 and 3 Dr. Clyde A. Lynch 
attended the annual meeting of the 
American Council on Education at the 
Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D. 
C. Lebanon Valley is an institutional 
member of this organization. 

Most of the addresses that were 
delivered concerned the relation of 
colleges to national defense. It was 
revealed that selective service officials 
are tending to a more liberal attitude 
toward students who are preparing 
for certain professions necessary for 
national health, interest and safety 
Lebanon Valley students who believe 
themselves eligible for occupational 
deferment should consult with Dr. 

Lynch concerning their status and 

Last Wednesday Dr. Lynch also at- 
tended the meeting of the Pennsyl- 
vania State Council for Defense which 
was called by Governor James and 
held at Harrisburg. 

Shay Will Head 
Men Day Students 

At a meeting of the Men's Day 
Student Congress, held on May 6, the 
following officers were elected: 
President, Ralph Shay; vice president, 
Carl Sherk; Student Faculty Repre- 
sentative, Earl Boltz; and secretary- 
treasurer, Cyril Little. 

For the coming term the senior 
members of the congress will be 
Shay, Sherk, Boltz, and Herbert 
Curry; the junior members will be 
Little, Frederick, Frantz, and John 
Hampton, and the Sophomores will be 
Jack McFadden, Franklin Unger, and 
Sidney Bashore. 

Queen with court presides 
During drill and pageant 

On Saturday, May 10, the campus 
of Lebanon Valley College will resem- 
ble the setting of an old tale from the 
Arabian Nights, as the annual May 
Day Pageant is presented for the en- 
tertainment of the Queen of the May 
and her court. In dance and music 
the story of "Aladdin and His Won- 
derful Lamp" will be told. 

Phyllis Deitzler is responsible for 
the selection of a theme and for the 
direction of the pageant. The various 
committees, the dance composers, and 
members of the faculty have united 
their efforts to produce an unusual pro- 
gram. An added feature will be a fifteen 
minute silent drill by the Headquart- 
ers and Service Company of the 103rd 
Engineers, Captain John L. Ross C. E. 

The Queen of the May, Joan Cox, 
and her court, including Ellen Rup- 
persberger, maid of honor; , Peggy 
Boyd, Marjorie Kishpaugh, Martha 
Jane Koontz, Feme Poet, Louella 
Schindel, and Floda Trout will view 
the scene from a flower-decked throne. 

The story of the pageant is the fam- 
iliar tale of the little Arabian boy 
who is chosen by a magician to secure 
a magic lamp from a cave which opens 
in the earth at the stranger's bidding. 
When Aladdin fails to hand up the 
lamp as he is commanded, the magi- 
cian rushes away in a state of fury, 
leaving the boy imprisoned within the 
cave. Accidently rubbing a magic ring 
he is wearing, the boy unwittingly 
calls forth a genie who takes him out 
of the cave. With the aid of the genie 
of the wonderful lamp, Aladdin, after 
many adventures, convinces his mother 
that he is no longer a mischievous 
little rascal, wins the hand of the 
Sultan's daughter, and lives happily 
ever after. 

Participants in the May Day pag- 
eant are as follows: 

Heralds — Joseph Carr, Samuel Der-

curtain call 

Honorable mention must be award- 
ed to the Wig and Buckle Club for 
being one of the most outstanding or- 
ganizations on L. V.'s campus. As an 
active group this year's club has quite 
surpassed its record of former years 
as well as that of many of other cam- 
pus groups. 

The innovation of student-produced 
one-act plays is commendable for the 
experience and opportunity it brings 
to the great number of students for 
acting, directing, and make-up. The 
club's meetings which were thrown 
open to all have provided highlights 
in entertainment. In the past few 
yours the club's one long dramatic 
presentation has been its most notice- 
able activity. A strong contrast is 
this season of headliners such as "Es- 
cape to Moonlings," "Air Raid," the 
monologues and Miss Altwalter's 

With the precedent set by this Wig 
and Buckle group all student clubs 
have a challenge for presenting well- 
planned, interesting programs during

We feel we express the attitude of 
all in this matter as campus commen- 
tary has indicated. 

For early delivery, unique copy, co-

tion Editor Guinivan deserves the 
gratitude of not only the class of '42 
but all Lebanon Valleyites.

here they find the Aladdin's lamp of

by Alf Noise 

Prompted by hearing the present 
day youths criticized for their neg- 
lectful attitude in following the events 
of the day appearing in our news- 
papers and periodicals, your reporter 
returns with a written retaliation. In 
my heart-felt expression, I wish to 
bring forth the hidden spirit that 
burns in the hearts of our youths who 
are to brave to allow others to see the 
flame burst from its air-tight com- 
partment. It is only just that one 
should realize the courage and wis- 
dom that exists before it is lost. 

In our youths we have been told to 
smile and be happy and to enjoy the 
springtime of life. Yes, we can work 
and play and be happy, but we can 
not pick up newspapers bearing the 
bloody accounts of war which rumbles 
about us and be happy. Are we avoid- 
ing an issue when we devote our news- 
paper time to the "funnies," cross- 
word puzzles, sports, or the like? Are 
we being unintellectual cowards? 

No! far from ignorant "dummies" 
is our classification, but rather that of 
wise youths who seek, not only men- 
tal health, but freedom from war-cry- 
ing propaganda. Remember, our fa- 
thers and mothers have told us of the 
suffering! of 1917. Flanders is filled 
with the dead bodies of the youths of 
a generation ago, and thousands of 
othei*s about us still suffer the physi- 
cal torments of those same yesteryears. 
We know "war is Hell," and we hate 
it with all our hearts. We have been 
so impregnated with the word propa- 
ganda that we suspect its every form. 
Since we have our own ideas about 
the world dilemma, why should we be- 
come a slave to the expression of those 
who would think for us? 

If you think we do not have the 
spirit of true Americans, we invite 
an enemy to our shores if they desire 
to see that our blood flows as red and 
as profusely as in 1776. But what we 
hate to hear suggested is the crimson- 
ing of foreign soil with our blood. The 
doughboys' cries of "never, never 
again" still ring in our ears. We know 
that the men who give the war cry 
never suffer themselves or permit 
their own flesh and blood to be "cannon 
fodder." We are psychologically train- 
ed, and we know that it is not difficult 
to arouse ourselves to a point where 
reason becomes dormant. When the 
bands begin to play, and the crowd 
cheers, it is too late; and we march 
again. We also know that many of the 
present-day advocates of war or 
the newspaper pulp generals are 
either to old to go to war, or 
too ignorant to make a soldier, 
or too young to have any sense. 
Therefore, we ask for respect for our 
feelings, and we shall keep on smiling, 
but never forget. If more of our lead- 
ers would think of poppies growing 
between rows and rows of white cross- 
es, we could probably smile longer.

LAST DAYS— Friday n ip. ht 
eight P. M. is the time! Only a at 

hearsals remain before the »*»i ^ 
of this emotion-stirring drama 
White Steed. In preparing y 0u f e 
he performance may I say that v °' 
columnist got the most unexpe c t ' 
thrill when she walked in on n 
hearsal on Sunday afternoon. Den ' 
)illon, a drunken schoolmaster, Br^ 
Souders, was crying to Nora, M. J T 
tones of real passion: "Lift me up'^ 
your White Steed, Nora"— and th" 
disdainful Nora answered i n c i! 
words, "Every man must lift himself 
onto the White Steed." Yes 
have stumbled into a discussion of the 
theme of the play. It is based sy ni * 
bolically on the old Irish legend f 
Ossian, the son of Finn, who Was 
taken away by the lovely Niam on her 
white steed to the Land of Youth 
Returning 300 years later in search 
of Finn, he finds all the great heroes 
dead and the land swarming W ith 
priests and little black men. One day 
he contemptuously leans down from 
the white steed and hurls into the 
air a flag of marble that one of the 
little men is vainly trying to raise 
But in doing so, he breaks the sad- 
dle girth. As his feet touch the 
earth, he withers miserably away 
But enough of the background. 

Then there is a vein of comedy in 
the play that is warm and adorably 
Irish. For sure 'an you'll be bounden 
to laugh at the rivalry of the two 
maids, Meg and Rosianne. There is 
a scene where they pull — but I'm tell- 
ing you everything! Dennis Sherk is 
a dear, irritable, old Catholic Canon 
who dominates the whole play with 
his wisdom and understanding of Ir- 
ish people and their needs. 

LOW BRIDGE— Ruth Kreider stole 
the show with her portrayal of an un- 
bending, slightly sour bridge enthus- 
iast. The other three girls, Anne 
Collins, Marian C. Kreider, and Jan- 
et Schopf all showed great stage 
presence and gave a really entertain- 
ing performance. We could scarcely 
believe it when we were told that this 
was a first try on the L. V. stage for 
all four actresses — pardon, Janet was 
the elevator girl and the voice on the 
telephone in "Escape by Moonlight" 
— but in both roles the major portion 
of her speeches consisted of a reiter- 
ition of "yes, Ma'm." However, i' 1 
"Low Bridge" she made a very charm- 
ing hostess — Did any of you notice 
the four or five bouquets placed 
around the stage? 

THE MONOLOGUE— We take our 
hats off to Janie Baker. With her 
very first words she had all our spines 
tingling. An admirably executed P iece 
of work think we— and that's putting 
it mildly! 

See you at the play —

Sports tJ7/i SAorts\ Recruits Select 

New Club Officers 

Since this is our last chance to in- 
form the public of just what goes on 
among 1 the women athletes, here's 
everything- in down-to-brass-tacks 
form: — 

W. A. A. Convention 

Miss Henderson attended the forty- 
sixth convention of the American As- 
sociation for Health, Physical Edu- 
cation and Recreation held at Atlan- 
tic City; this organization is a depart- 
ment of the National Educational As- 
sociation. The convention theme, 
"National preparedness today and to- 
morrow," was carried out in a num- 
ber of addresses, several of which 
stressed the importance of mental and 
physical health. A strong plea was 
sent out to public schools and col- 
leges to give more attention to a 
well-rounded program, in preference 
to varsity sports. It was suggested 
that physical education be given time 
and credit equal to that of academic 
courses; this was directed especially 
to school administrators. 

Especially interesting to the wo- 
men was the conference on the con- 
tributions of women's sports to na- 
^'onal preparedness. The conclusion 
reached after having heard represen- 

tives from every field of women's 
sports, amounted to this: girls seem 

i receive a better rounded program 
"u- physical and mental health than 
men do. 

Physical education leaders and in 
structors were reminded of the fact 
that in this present crisis, they are 
in the best position to act as a steady 
ing influence among the youth, help 
ing to avoid the hysteria that seems 
almost inevitable. 

The Schwert Bill was discussed 
thoroughly; it seems to be a practical 
means of promoting physical fitness 
in the elementary grades as well as a 
means of providing summer camps for 
all children — not only the under — 
and over — privileged classes. It 
was pointed out that this plan will re- 
quire more teachers in the field, 
rather than more equipment. 

Evidence of greater correlation be- 
tween the physical health field and 
hat of academic education was indi- 
cated by the fact that the leaders in 
the fields are working side by side 
toward a mutual goal. 

It has been announced that the W. 
A. A. initiation will take place the 
week of May 19, lasting three days. 
These activities will be climaxed by a 
a supper hike on Wednesday evening, 
May 21. 

Miss Henderson has stated her in- 
tentions of entertaining the retiring 
and new W. A. A. cabinets on Wed- 
nesday evening, May 14 at a dinner 
at the New England Pantry. 


On Saturday, May 17, at 2 o'clock, 
an archery meet will be held here on 
campus. A number of extra targets 
will be in use, and further arrange- 
ments should make the affair one to 
be remembered. In addition to Leba- 
non Valley men and women, the fol- 
lowing schools are expected to par- 
ticipate: Wilson, Hood, University of 
Pennsylvania, Temple University, 
Millersville, Kutztown, Cedar Crest, 
Shippensburg, Dickinson, Lehigh, 
Franklin and Marshall. 


Dottie Schindel, tennis leader, has 
arranged a women's tennis match 
with Albright, in the very near fu- 
ture. Due to complications, the orig- 
inal date had to be changed, so watch 
the bulletin boards! 


Volleyball tournaments among the 
three dorms and day students have 
elicited much enthusiasm among the 
players. Results in terms of games 
won show South Hall to have an in- 
vincible volleyball team. 


This sport will begin next week on 
the hockey field— and where it begins, 
we stop! So long until next year! 

At the Life Work Recruit meeting 
held on Tuesday, May 6, the annual 
election of officers was completed nam- 
ing Robert Mays as President. The 
remaining results are as follows: 

Vice President, Lloyd Crall; Secre- 
tary-Treasurer, Marian C. Kreider; 
Pianist, Evelyn Stine; Deputation 
Chairman, Charles Wolfe. 

Speaker of the meeting was Dr. 
Clyde A. Lynch whose subject was 
"The Modern Church-world Relation- 
ship" which selection will appear in 
print in the near future. 

Report was given that the Life 
Work Recruit movies which were pre- 
sented at two showings on Wednesday, 
April 30, were shown to over eighty- 
five persons. The motion pictures con- 
sisted of a talkie entitled "Beyond 
our Horizons" and shorts. 

Diplomat Netmen 
Repeat Victory 
Over Dutchmen 

Wednesday afternoon the Franklin 
and Marshall College Tennis team a- 
gain demonstrated its superiority over 
the Blue and White net squad by over- 
coming the Dutchman by the same 
score as on Monday at the Lancaster 
courts, 9-0. None of the matches were 
forced beyond 2 sets as the racquet 
wielders from the Red Rose City play- 
ed steady and consistent tennis. The 
visitors brought 10 men to L. V. C. 
and found it necessary to have only 
their number 1 and number 2 men 
participate in the doubles. Alternates 
in the other doubles matches were 
found to be as capable as the first six 
men on the squad. 

Baer of the visitors blanked Smith 
of the Valley 6-0, 6-0 and Sammy 
Grimm was able to cop only 6 games 
in his two sets. Downs turned in the 
best day for the home squad in taking 
7 games. Guinivan duplicated Grimm's 
actions in garnering 6 games while 
DeHuff and Carr were blanked in one 
set and took only 2 games in their 
other turn on the courts. 

A review of the season to date re- 
veals that the L. V. C. tennis men 
have taken only one match in three 
played. The Grimm-captained team 
narrowly missed defeat on the fourth 
occasian by slipping by Albright 5-4 
on the Lion courts. Of the five re- 
maining matches, difficulty is expect- 
ed with Bucknell, Moravian, and Mu- 
hlenberg while Juniata and E-town 
are not exactly listed as push-overs in 
any league. 



Bachman, F. and M., defeated Grimm, 
L. V. C, 6-4, 6-2. 

Baer, F. and M., defeated Smith, L. 
V. C, 6-0, 6-0. 

Anderson, F. and M., defeated De- 
Huff, L. V. C, 6-2, 6-0. 
Hager, F. and M., defeated Downs, 
L. V. C, 7-5, 6-2. 

-Nicholas, F. and M., defeated Guini- 
van, L. V. C, 6-3, 6-3. 
Barber, F. and M., defeated Carr, 
L. V. C, 6-2, 6-0.

Costly In Game 
With Washington 

The Lebanon Valley baseball team 
lost its sixth game in eight starts 
when the Washington College nine 
took advantage of six errors and sev- 
eral other miscues on the part of the 
Blue and White baseballers at Ches- 
tertown, Md., on Wednesday after- 
noon. Art Russo took the mound for 
the Ullery men and scattered 15 hits 
over 9 innings but losing the ball 
game largely because of the blunders 
of his mates afield. 

The Dutchmen failed to score in the 
first four innings as Maguire allowed 
only one hit in that time when Schil- 
lo smacked the ball into right field 
in the first inning. In the meantime, 
the home team appeared well on its 
way to victory in posting a 5-0 advan- 
tage as the Valley batsmen came to 
the plate at the start of the fifth 

Consternation reigned in the ranks 
of the home team as Kuhn and his 
mates pushed six runs across the 
plate on two measly hits. Selby took 
to the rubber in this inning for the 
Maryland team. The Valley increas- 
ed its lead with two more counters 
in the seventh frame. Then the Ches- 
tertown outfit came to life and shook 
five men across the fourth sack in the 
sixth and seventh innings on 3 hits. 
From then on it was all up for the 
Dutchmen. Washington scored again 
in the eighth and Mease scored his 
second run of the day in the last 
chukker for L. V. C. 

Selby was credited with the victory 
by allowing only 4 hits in 5 and 2-3 
innings and striking out six opposing 

The score sheet indicated that this 
home team out-hit the Ullery men fif- 
teen to seven and committed only 2 
errors to the Valley's six costly mis- 
cues. Three stolen bases and a pass- 
ed ball added to pitcher Russo's 
troubles. Stevens smacked out a round 
tripper for Washington, Ruff earned 
two triples and Samele stretched his 
legs to gain a double. 

Chem Club PI ans 
Trip To Princeton 

Through the efforts of Dr. H. D. 
Smyth, head of the Physic Department 
at Princeton University, the Chem Club 
has obtained permission to inspect the 
cyclotron at that institution. Beside 
investigating the atom smasher, the 
club will see the liquid air plant, spec- 
troscopic equipment, and other instru- 
ments. Those desiring to go on this 
trip should inform Bob Rapp, the 
president, of their intentions in order 
tha't ample transportation might be 
gotten. The date for the trip is tenta- 
tively planned for May 16. 

Students Appear 
In Tuesday's Concert 

There will be a Student Recital on 
Tuesday, May 13, at 8 P. M. in Engle 
Hall. The following persons will par- 
ticipate in the program: 
Luke Hains, organ. 
Helen Morrison, piano. 
Walter Ebersole, clarinet. 
George Moore, violin. 
Howard Phillippy, tenor.

The Girls' Band will again go to 
Ephrata for Memorial Day, May 30. 
They will leave here in the morning 
and arrive there in time to take part 
in the annual parade to the cemetery. 
In the afternoon they will give a con- 
cert in the park. This organization has

Ruppersberger Wins 
Theatre Scholarship 

Miss Ellen Ruppersberger, campus 
beauty from Baltimore, has recently 
been informed that she is to be the 
recipient of a $50 scholarship award- 
ed by the Lake Shoi'e Theatre, a mem- 
ber of the National Little Theatre As- 
sociation, neair Milwaukee, Wiscon- 
sin. The scholarship includes a four- 
week course with the Radio Drama 
Workshop. The course is composed 
of the study of radio acting and di- 
recting, voice and diction, and radio 
script writing. Students are also 
given auditions in major broadcasting 
network studios. However, as Miss 
Ruppersberger prefers the stage to 
radio, she has not definitely decided 
to accept the scholarship. 

Athletics Play Part 
'n May Day Program 

As is customary with the Baseball 
team and the Tennis squad, both of 
these groups will entertain alumni stu- 
dents, prospective students, friends, 
and visitors to the Blue and White 
campus tomorrow to round out the 
May Day program. 

The tennis team will swing into ac- 
tion in the morning when "Sammy" 
Grimm Heads his cohorts onto the 
college courts to cross racquets with the 
Elizabethtown tennis team. A large 
group of students has always witness- 
ed the matches of the Dutchmen rac- 
queteers on home courts, but it has 
become a tradition to find the lawn 
filled with enthusiastic followers on 
May Day to add moral support to the 
spirit of Valley netmen. 

In the afternoon while the May Day 
fete is well under way the baseball team 
will take the field to do battle with a 
nine representing the 112th Infantry 
of the 28th Division in federal service 
at Indiantown Gap. Athletic Director 
did all within his power to engage an 
outfit from a nearby college for the 
day when he found that a change of 
date for the May Day program had 
taken place. Consequently he was 
forced to accept the only possibility re- 
maining and invited the soldier ball 
team to provide the opposition for 
the afternoon. 

Koontz Presents 
Dramatic Clinic 

Martha Jane Koontz will conduct a 
dramatic clinic at the Diocese of the 
Girls' Friendly Society to be held at 
St. Luke's Church on Friday and 
Saturday, May 16 and 17. 

Friday afternoon she will lecture on 
dramatic methods for informal and 
formal drama laying stress on relig- 
ious drama and choral speaking. She 
is planning to give a special demon- 
ration of shadow-graphing and w'.Y. 
teach dramatic games in addition to 
demnstrating the various principles 
of directing. She will also recommend 
plays suitable for presentation in the 
chancel of a church. 

In the evening, several college 
students will cooperate in presenting 
'Lima Beans," a scherzo-play by Al- 
fred Kreymberg. This will be given 
in the style of Our Town.

Kuhn Pitches Team 
To Second Victory 
Over U. of Del. 

Frank Kuhn earned his second 
straight victory and pitched a swell 
ball game when Lebanon Valley 
downed the University of Delaware 
5-3 on Tuesday in the first game of 
the two day road trip that found the 
Dutchmen meeting Washington Col- 
lege on the following day. 

Kuhn faced the opposing batsmen 
for three innings without allowing « 
hit until Aspley banged out a single 
in the fourth only to be caught in a 
fast double play engineered by the 
smooth working L. V. C. infield. Not 
another hit could the Mudhens get un- 
til Hogan and Tibbitt slashed out 
home runs in the seventh after Kuhn 
had sent Sadowski back to the bench 
on his third trip to the plate. 

Meanwhile the Dutchmen batter 
solved the offerings of southpaw J° e 
Bagovich and piled up a five run lea' 
in the fourth canto. Tibbitt came ove) 
from the initial sack at this point an 
held the Blue and White players 
two hits for the rest of the afternoon-

exhibition of baseball to de- 


feat Muhlenberg College 11-7 in an 
Eastern Pennsylvania Collegiate con- 
test at Allentown last week. 

To Captain Frank Kuhn go the 
laurels for the initial victory of the 
•ear. The veteran righthander started 
j n grand style, retiring the opponents 
. order in the first two frames, was 
t he victim of some ragged fielding and 
^ ve base blows in the third, and then 
came back to pitch perfect shutout 
ball for the last six innings 

Lebanon Valley scored first in the 
, eC0I1 d inning when Matala and Smith 
doubled with two down to push one 
run across the platter. The Mules 
came back in the third to mark up 
seven counters. Crampsy's home run 
with a mate on board was mixed in 
with the assault. 

Trailing 7-1 in the first half of the 
fourth, the Valley took advantage of 
three errors and rapped out three 
solid blows including Miller's double 
to score four runs. Staley cut the lead 
in the fifth when he drove his first 
home run'of the season to deep center 
Matala started the rally in the 
sixth that put the Flying Dutchmen 
out in front when he singled to left. 
Smith popped out while attempting to 
sacrifice. With the hit and run signal 
en, Beckner singled to center and Ma- 
tala raced to third. The throw-in got 
away from the catcher and one run 
scored, Beckner taking third. Mease 
worked a perfect squeeze play to send 
Beckner across the plate with the run 
that put the locals out in front. 

While Kuhn was setting the Mules 
down, in order, .the Valley went on to 
put the game on ice by scoring single 
tallies in the seventh, eighth and 
ninth. The Mules flared up in the 
ninth when with one down Weatherold 
and Stone singled to center. A field- 
er's choice nipped Stone at second 
and Kuhn fanned Houser to end the 
ball game. 

Heavy slugging marked the Valley 
attack as Matala banged out four 
defies, includ ing two doubles. Smith, 
Beckner, Schillo, Staley and Miller 
ea ch had two hits apiece.

"Sammy" Grimm took over the job 
held down by "Stewie" Shapiro last 
year when he accepted the positions of 
both manager and captain of the Fly- 
ing Dutchmen Tennis Squad for the 
current season. In this dual role 
Sammy finds himself dashing hither 
and yon to keep his boys in trim and 
arranging for matches with foreign 
court teams. The position that he has 
accepted is a thankless one but Grimm 
has put forth great effort to obtain 
a well rounded schedule. 

Sam shewed up well in his freshman 
year as a performer on the clay courts 
and since then has held down a post 
on the tennis team until he was named 
as captain of this year's squad. 
Sammy has a fine game that shows up 
to advantage when he is under pres- 
sure. He has a fine backhand along 
with a splendid forehand shot. Add to 
this a slashing and deceptive service 
and excellent footwork developed dur- 
ing years of play on the court and 
you have a first rate tennis man. 

Moravian Defeats 
Baseball Nine 10-5 

Paying a return visit to th_> Blue 
and White after an earlier engage- 
ment, the Moravian College Grey 
hounds made it two straight over 
Lebanon Valley for the season by giv- 
ing the Dutchmen a 10-5 lacing the 
past Saturday afternoon. 

Armand Russo, freshman right- 
hander, making his debut as a start- 
ing pitcher, ran into a little trouble 
in the opening innings and Moravian 
was out in front with a 4-0 lead at 
the end of three innings. 

The Valley broke the ice in the 
fourth when they tallied once, but the 
visitors made it 5-1 in the fifth. But 
n the seventh the Dutchmen bunched 
together three hits and a walk to push 
cross three big runs. 

Lebanon Valley appealed very 
much in the ball game when Morav- 
ian came to but in the ninth, holding 
i 6-5 lead, but the Greyhounds push- 
id across four markers to sew up the 
ball game. In this last frame, a single 
nd two walks filled the bases and 
tad Sinton, a left hand hitter, poled 
; a diive to left field that landed 
on the foul line, which was good for 
triple and three runs crossed the 
latter. Sinton scored when Bob 
riffith dragged out his fourth suc- 
>ssive hit to end all scoring for the 


Georgie Smith led the locals in the 
itting attack, collecting three solid 
singles while burly Ed Schillo and 
Russo followed with two hits apiece, 
-die Mease and Staley excelled in 
Ju (ie'd'ng department. 

press box views 
by F. I. 

At the time of writing it appears 
that this will be the last opportunity 
for this columnist to air his views 
through this sheet. A mix-up in the 
front office has made it seem as tho 
no further issue of the school paper 
will be run off the press until the fall 
term. Now just when some sort of 
organization was beginning to show 
itself this staff finds itself "mouse- 
trapped" in a most subtle manner 
without having a chance to fall on our 
knees and face the play to the inside. 
Money matters — bah! 

Muhlenberg awoke last week to find 
that not only do the Valley batsmen 
pack the wallops, but there is also 
a man on the Blue and White pitch- 
ing staff includes a hurler like 
"Frankie" Kuhn who can control the 
ball when he begins to bear down. 
Ullery's boys went to work with the 
intent to win in mind and came out 
of the fray with a victory in their 
hands. Incidentally, it was the fii - st 
ball game of the year that the L. V. 
nine was able to call their own. 

But then came the storm. The Mor- 
avian Greyhounds trotted up to this 
little Dutch town from Bethlehem to 
duplicate the shellacking they handed 
to the Valleyites a week before on 
their own diamond. Well, as Lady 
Luck would have it, Stelter again took 
the mound for the ball team repre- 
senting the little church school and 
handcuffed the Blue and White bats- 
men. It is encouraging to note how- 
ever that the visiting baseballers did 
not have the contest in the bag until 
the Valley hurler slipped to allow 
four runs to cross the play. Stelter 
also found the L. V. C. batsmen a bit 
more potent than when he subdued 
them by a 10-4 score on his own field. 

Between these two contests the boys 
turned out on the local cornfield to 
engage in a fray with an outfit rep- 
resenting the 112th Infantry stationed 
at Indiantown Gap. But, lo and be- 
hold, no tanks or troop lorries ap- 
peared on the local theater of opera- 
tions and Coach Ullery was again 
forced to have his pupils engage in 
an infra-squad tussle. And to think 
that only a few weeks ago Coach 
Frock was preparing to build a few 
tank traps and erect barbed-wire en- 
tanglements around his office to keep 
out the onsurging band of uniformed 
infantrymen who were besieging him 
in his den for games with the Valley. 
Again, Fascist propaganda. 

The tennis squad seems to be swing- 
ing into stride after the first disas- 
trous match with the Dickinson rac- 
quet wielders at Carlisle in the sea- 
son opener. The close 5-4 decision 
gained over the Lion net squad at 
Reading last Saturday shows that 
there is still room for improvement. 
In that last match new faces appear- 
ed on the courts for the Valley as 
"Bob" Guinivan and "Johnny" Downs 
took up arms to attack the opponents. 
Smith again showed up well as the 
Freshman performer disposed of his 
opponent with little difficulty. 

The college courts have been placed 
in better shape then in years past and 
the racquet team will be enabled to 
get in plenty of practice until the sea- 
son is brought to a close with the 
match with Moravian on the home 
courts late in May. 

In view of this being the last issue 
of the year, we bring to your atten- 
tion the next item on the agenda — 

September 2, 1941— Captain "Ed" 
Schillo will lead a group of approxi- 
mately 15 gridmen of this year's 
squad back to the campus to begin 
training for the 8-game schedule. 

C.C.N.y. To Be Met 
At Hershey Bowl 

Coach "Jerry" Frock definitely an- 
nounced this week that the football 
game between L. V. C. and C. C. 
N. Y. will be played on Oct. 10 at the 
Hershey Chocolate Bowl. This ar- 
rangement completes the schedule for 
riext year which will find the Dutch- 
men playing three games in the near 
vicinity of the school. The Home- 
coming game will be played at Ann- 
ville with Blue Ridge College furn- 
ishing the opposition, and the tradi- 
tional battle between the Blue and 
White and the Albright Lions will 
take place in the Lebanon Stadium. 

With the final arrangement of the 
C. C. N. Y. game the Flying Dutch- 
men again have two games to be play- 
ed under the arc lights next year; the 
other being the annual tussle with 
Moravian. Also included in next 
year's Schedule will be Bucknell at 
Lewisburg and Juniata College at 

These formidable opponents will be 
met by the Valley team under the lead- 
ership cf Capt. Ed. Schillo, who will 
lead his team into training the day 
after Labor Day. 

L. V. Net Men Nose 

Lebanon Valley College netmen won 
their first match of the season over 
their arch rivals of Albright College 
by the close score of 5-4 on the Read- 
ing courts last Saturday. 

The Single matches were split and 
victory was not insured until the No. 
1 doubles team of Smith and Grimm 
defeated Walton ,and Heisey in a 
hard fought match by the score of 
7-5; 5-7; 6-3. 

Alton Smith won his second con- 
secutive match of the season and gave 
promise of becoming a polished per- 
former. Captain Sam Grimm came 
through with his first victory of the 
season at the expense of Heisey in 
straight sets. 

Bob Guinivan and Johnny Downs 
made their first appearance on the 
courts for the Blue and White and 
while neither of them won, both play- 
ed good tennis and gave promise for 
the future, especially as a good doub- 
les combination. 

It would take a good many rowi 
of telephone poles 
to carry 2400 separate wires. 
But pack them all 
into one cable like this 
and one pole line 
can carry the load 
at much lower cost 
and with less danger 
of damage from storm 
and sleet. 


levelopments like that 
have helped enormously 
to keep telephone service 
fast and dependable 
and low in cost.
